document delivery

Looking for something?

We'll be happy to borrow it from another library via our Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery Service.

All CLIN Libraries have a Document Delivery Service (full text journal article request) and Interlibrary Loans Service (book & book chapter request) available to SWSLHD staff. Journal articles and books may be requested to support clients' research, patient care and study through the Library's Interlibrary Loans and Document Supply Service.

What is the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) & Document Delivery Service?

This service is used to request items such as books, journal articles, conference proceedings or book chapters that are not held within your CLIN Libraries' collections.

Who can use this service? Is there a cost?

This service is available to all employees of South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) and affiliated organisations. The CLIN Libraries are part of a network of Health Libraries across Australia that endeavour to provide journal articles, books and book chapters at no cost to the requestor.

However if any costs are incurred they are passed onto the requestor for payment. You will be notified before the request is processed if any charges apply.

How do I submit an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) or Document Delivery Request?

To request any item or journal article not held within your CLIN Libraries' collections please complete the online form.
