Document Delivery & Interlibrary Loans

The VGLS document delivery service supports your research and evidence-based policy formation needs by obtaining additional resources for you.

Follow these simple steps to get started:

1. Is it available in our collections ?

2. If you want articles, books or other documents that we don’t have, we will try to find another library who does. Place a request by filling out the online form.

Use your Library Username and Password to access the online forms.

Tips for success

  • New User – please register prior to filling in a form, as all electronic content is delivered direct to your library account.
  • Choose the right form and this will avoid delays in the delivery of your request.
  • One form per enquiry.
  • Input as much information as you can.
  • Interlibrary loans can take some time – please let us know if it’s required urgently.

Our new automated document supply service will keep you informed regarding the progress of your request.

All core costs for Inter library loans are provided by the Victorian Government Library Service. However high priority document requests or rush interlibrary loans or large qualities of items that are required to support a major piece of work (for example to support an inquiry or Royal Commission) will be negotiated with the user.
