Publically Accessible Libraries
ACT Public Library System
Library membership is free to all people who live, work, visit or study in the ACT and surrounding district of the Canberra region. Proof of identity and proof of address are required to join. Complete the ACT Libraries membership form, or visit one of the branches in person.
National Library of Australia (NLA)
All permanent residents of Australia are eligible to access the NLA and its collection. However, in order to use the library collection you must apply for a National Library of Australia library card.
This is when you can have access to another university/institutions library because you are a staff or student of UC. It is set up for you by the University Libraries of Australia and New Zealand (ULANZ) scheme.
In most cases you will need to contact the relevant library, visit them and provide photo ID and evidence of current enrolment/employment at UC (i.e. a current student/staff card). According to the scheme, your borrowing privileges with the other organisation are valid until the 28th February for the following year, at which point you will have to reapply for access.
Institutions in the ACT that you may be interested in applying for reciprocal borrowing privileges at include (for a full list of institutions for this scheme please visit ULANZ website):
