BONUS+ is a new seamless Library service for our students and staff, which will provide an alternative and faster way for you to access books that we don’t own or are on loan in our Library.
What is Bonus+?
BONUS+ is a co-operative book resource-sharing initiative among 14 major university libraries in Australia and New Zealand.
What’s in it for me?
You will have access to other library collections. If we don’t have a particular book, or the copies we have are out on loan, you will be able to see if any of the member libraries have a copy for you to borrow.
Who can use the service?
All students and staff at the University of Sydney.
How does it work?
When you search our Library catalogue and don’t find the item that you are after, simply click on the Bonus+ icon to see if another library has a copy available. The request is processed automatically – no filling in forms. And when the item arrives, we will email you to let you know that your book is ready for pickup. You can also keep track of your requests via MyLoans.
When can I start requesting from these libraries?
Wednesday 16 July 2014.
