Get this item options assist you to obtain an item, either by borrowing it from your library, from another library or by getting a copy of it from a library or library supplier.

The options are available under four tabs and their associated links:

Copy (tab available if your library is setup for enhanced requesting)

Simplified copy and loan request forms for library staff

A simple copy and loan request form is also accessible via the Get this item screen designed specifically for library and interlibrary loan staff. The form is easy to use and does not require the staff member to enter details such as the user barcode and name.  The interlibrary loan form for staff is mediated using Libraries Australia Document Delivery.  If your library is not a member of Libraries Australia Document Delivery and you have “enhanced requesting - staff loan” turned on, the email form will go to your ILRS email.  If your library would like to have access to this simple inter-library loan form for staff they should contact the Libraries Australia Help Desk with the user account details.
