Library Services - Requesting an item not available at UON

Timing of changes for BONUS+, ArticleReach, and Inter-Library Loans:

14th November 2022

  • Requests for books through BONUS+ will cease
  • Requests for books, chapters and articles can still be submitted through Get It

2nd December 2022

  • All current BONUS+ items on loan from other institutions must be returned
  • Requests for articles through ArticleReach will cease
  • Requests for books, chapters and articles can still be submitted through Get It

February 2023

  • New library services platform launch – all searching and requests for resources will be via our new discovery layer.

What do I need to do?

From 14th November place all inter-library requests for books, chapters and articles through Get It, and return any BONUS+ borrowed books by 2nd December.

Does this mean I’ll have access to fewer resources?

Our new resource sharing network will expand the number of collections and items directly available to University of Newcastle staff and students. Many of the Australian university libraries who participate were also previously members of the BONUS+ consortia.

What else will change when the new library services platform launches?

We’re currently working hard on the initial stages of the project and are excited to share all the new features and improvements with you as we move forward. We’ll be running demonstrations, drop-in sessions, and Q&As as we get closer to go-live!

What if I have other questions?

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions.
