BONUS+ logoBONUS+ 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.

Fisher Library Upgrade Continues L5
The exciting project to renew Fisher Library is reaching its halfway point. Newly renovated floors will open up progressively over the next few months. Meanwhile, 200 desks are available for quiet study throughout stack levels 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 & 9 and we have created a temporary study and computer space on level 5 (see photo).

We will shortly begin the transfer of low use material to storage when it will be delivered on request. We are grateful to the academic staff who sent through over 1000 recommendations for item location changes during the collection review. To keep up-to-date with the latest progress check information in the foyer or head to

Please note that the Campus Card Centre has relocated from Fisher Library to Ground Floor, Margaret Telfer Building K07, Arundel Street
