UWA Library

How does it work?

All books identified by your unit coordinator as essential should be available at the Albany Public Library. UWA overnight loan items are shelved separately at Albany Public Library and can only be borrowed by Albany campus students. Students may borrow up to 6 items from the UWA overnight loan collection, and up to 20 items may be borrowed from the general Library collection or non-overnight loan UWA titles.

You can use OneSearch to see if a book is in the Albany Public Library.

When you click on Request item, you can select your pickup location. You will see an option to pick it up from the Albany campus.

If an item is held in the UWA Library in Perth but not in Albany, you can request the Library to send you the item or a scan.

The UWA Library can send:

  • books
  • audio-visual items
  • scanned copies of journal articles or book chapters

The UWA Library cannot send:

  • High-demand items or reference collections
  • Items not held at UWA
  • Items you can obtain electronically/online
  • Albany Public Library items

UWA Library support services

The UWA Library can help you with finding and referencing information, using UWA IT systems like Pheme and LMS, printing and a whole lot more. Explore our self-guided resources or contact a librarian.
