Using the Library

Register online to become a member and access the Eva Burrows College Library.

How many books can I borrow and for how long?

A maximum of 10 items may be borrowed by each student. Items from the main collection are loaned for 2 weeks and can be renewed at the library, by phone or online, if they are not on reserve.

Users receive an email reminder three days before books are due.

How do I borrow books?

A library membership is required to begin borrowing. This membership can be completed online or in person. Reciprocal borrowing rights exist for staff and students from other University of Divinity colleges; a current staff or student card is required.

On-campus students may borrow books using the self-service checkout in the library or ask staff for assistance at the desk.

All students can reserve books online through the catalogue or send a request to the library via email. These books will be posted out via Express Post, to a maximum cost of $16.95 (3kg). Return postage costs are the responsibility of the borrower and the books must be posted back to the lending library.

What should I do if I want to renew my loan?

Items can be renewed by logging on to your borrower’s account through the library catalogue, or contacting the library.  If the item has been requested or reserved by another user, then a renewal will not be possible and the item must be returned by the original due date.

Care of library items

Borrowers are responsible for their loans and lost or damaged items requiring replacement must be paid for by the borrower.

We ask that you do not mark any of the books with highlighters, pens, pencils or fold any of the pages.

Photocopying, printing and scanning

The library has a photocopier which will scan to USB or email at no charge. Photocopying is charged at 10c per black & white copy. No colour copying is available at the library.

Library staff will scan pages from books and journals for all students, but you must complete a Scanning Request Form and indicate the chapter, page numbers or topic within that book. Staff are bound by Australian copyright regulations when scanning the book. Please contact the library for more information.

Computers and WiFi

All computers in the libraries have internet access.  You are welcome to bring in your own laptop or device, WiFi is available. Library staff can provide you with the WiFi password.
