Australian Interlibrary Resource Sharing (ILRS) Code

The Australian Interlibrary Resource Sharing (ILRS Code) November 2013, replaces the code adopted by the library sector in 2011. The ILRS Code benefits Australian libraries and their users by providing greater predictability, consistency, and flexibility in obtaining materials. The ILRS Code has been endorsed by the Australia Library Peak bodies including Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), National and State Libraries Australia (NSLA), the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) and the National Library of Australia.
 

TAFE Libraries National Reciprocal Borrowing Scheme

The TAFE Libraries National Reciprocal Borrowing Scheme is managed by the ALIA VET Libraries Advisory Committee. It allows students and staff of participating TAFE libraries to register and borrow materials in person from any other participating host TAFE library in any other state, in addition to their own library. The scheme is designed to assist students and staff who may be enrolled with or employed by a TAFE institution in one state but who find it more convenient to access TAFE library services in another state.
