Borrowing books through Click & Collect

A limited Click & Collect service will be offered.

Essential ANU staff will be able to access the JB Chifley Library with permission and can collect items. 

All other ANU students and staff can contact the ANU Library to access Click & Collect with the details of which items are needed and how they would like to arrange for collection.

ANU Library staff do our best to accommodate all requests including mailing material, dropping off to halls of residences and other drop offs.

You will be able to pick up Click and Collect items from outside the JB Chifley Library on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11am to 1pm

Click & Collect items requested after 3pm Tuesday 28 September will not be available to collect on Monday 4 October due to the public holiday. Items will instead be available on Wednesday

Click & Collect is a free service that allows ANU academics and postgraduate and honours students to request monographs from any ANU Library branch (including the print repository) which will then be delivered to the JB Chifley or WK Hancock Library to collect anytime. These branches are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ANU students and staff.
