Ordering copies from other collections: Inter-library requests

Inter-library service

This service is for the supply of books or documents such as articles or reports from local, national and international sources.

Because charges vary depending on the source and speed of supply, we prefer to offer a quote as a first stage in filling a request. Please submit the request for quotation form below. A staff member will then contact you to discuss charges and average turnaround times, payment, delivery options and your copyright obligations including fair dealing.

Any customer submitting credit card details by email does so at their own risk and in acknowledgement that the State Library will not be held responsible for any credit card security breach arising from interception of such transmission.
