Your library membership

You automatically have a membership with the library if you are a student or staff member of the university. Your library borrowing record is where we record the books that you've borrowed and information relevant to your borrowing at the library.

You are also able to access your library record online in the catalogue.

Your library borrowing record

Accessing your library borrowing record online gives you the ability to see the due dates and any fines in relation to items that you've borrowed from a library branch. You can also renew your loans (some items are not renewable ie. hourly loans and overnight loans).

Login to your library borrowing record

Access to electronic resources

As part of your library membership you also get access to electronic resources including databases, e-journals, full-text articles and e-books by using our search tool, Discovery.

Apart from some designated library library terminals, electronic resource access is limited to current University of Melbourne staff and students. If your access is not working, please check if your staff/student card is current with your Faculty.

Single sign on

The library uses the University's single sign-on (SSO) service to provide borrowers with access to their library account and other library systems ie. Discovery and Relais (inter-library loans requesting) .

SSO allows you to provide your username and password once and then move seamlessly between many University web applications. For instance, it lets you move from the student portal to the catalogue and then to Discovery without the need to log in again.
