BONUS+ makes more books available for ECU students and staff

The ECU library is now offering all staff and students access to a huge database of publications, thanks to the new BONUS+ interlibrary loan service.

The service gives staff and students access to over 4 million items from the catalogues of libraries such as Murdoch University, Deakin University, Melbourne University, and University of Technology Sydney, if the book is not available within the ECU library catalogue.

Staff and students simply need to click on the BONUS+ icon next to the unavailable book, to request a copy from another university. Your requested book will then be delivered to the campus library of your choice, free of charge.

The service is open to all ECU students and staff, and is the first time an interlibrary loan service has been available to undergraduate students.

If the book you require is not available at ECU or via BONUS+, contact the library staff for more information.
