Other university libraries

BONUS+ is a resource-sharing program that allows ECU students and staff to borrow selected library material from other participating universities.

University libraries participating in the BONUS+ program are:

  • University of Newcastle;
  • University of Technology Sydney;
  • University of Ballarat;
  • University of Melbourne;
  • Victoria University;
  • La Trobe University;
  • Deakin University;
  • Queensland University of Technology; and
  • Massey University, New Zealand.

If the book that you need is not held at an ECU library, you can request it online from another BONUS+ library and collect it a few days later from the ECU campus library of your choice.

If you cannot find the book which you want on either the ECU library catalogue or BONUS+, and you are eligible to use document delivery, you can also request your item via VDX.

How to use BONUS+

You can search and request for a library item with Bonus+ as per your usual search in the library catalogue:

  • Search the ECU library catalogue for an item.
  • If the book you require is not available, click on the BONUS+ icon and the search is repeated in the BONUS+ catalogue.
  • Select Request This Item.
  • Select ECU.
  • Enter your name and your student/staff number.
  • Choose your collection location.
  • Click on Submit.

Your request should be available to collect from the designated library within 4-7 working days. You will be notified via email when it is ready to collect. BONUS+items can be returned at any ECU campus library.
