Changes to External Student Delivery Services

The Library has made changes to the ways in which we support external students, in keeping with the University’s decision to provide all learning materials for external students electronically. From the beginning of 2014, we will no longer be posting printed material to external students. The Library has been developing a large profile of electronic resources for some years now and we are well placed to cease the posting of physical resources to our external students. External students have access to ebooks, ArticleReach and Journal databases wherever they are geographically located and will also continue to have access to other tertiary institutions within Australia as reciprocal borrowers if they conveniently reside close to one or more of them.

Changes to penalty points for overdue loans

The Library has increased the number of penalty points you will accrue for some items you have borrowed, if they are not returned or renewed by the date they are due back. 3 Day Reserve loans will now incur 50 points for each day they are overdue, and BONUS+ and Document Delivery loans will incur 10 points for each day they are overdue. These changes have been introduced to provide more equitable access to the Murdoch University and other library collections. Please see our borrowing page for more information about penalty points and fines.
