Borrowing books from the library

Current students may borrow from any of the ACAP campus libraries.

Students studying entirely online or by blended delivery can request books through our postal lending service or place digitisation requests for chapters out of books.

Newly enrolled students may borrow two weeks prior to the commencement of their courses.

Returning Items

Items can be renewed up to 6 times unless they have been placed on hold by another student.

You may return all borrowed items to any campus library either by post or in person.

Returning books to the library by post is made at borrowers' expense.
