Request Non-CSU Items

Items that are not held by CSU Library may be located and supplied from another library using our Interlibrary loans service. This service is provided free for academic staff and honours, masters and PhD students provided it is directly related to your current study or research at CSU. 

  1. Check Primo Search for availability in the CSU libraries
  2. If item is not held requests must be submitted using the Request non-CSU link in Primo Search. Please ensure you provide a full and accurate citation.
