Most university libraries are open to the public, have excellent collections and may be closer to you than the JNI library. As a JNI student, you're encouraged to visit other university libraries to reference and photocopy materials. Some university libraries also allow JNI students to join as a borrower, although a fee may be charged. Check with specific libraries for details.

- University of Sydney
- University of NSW
- Macquarie University
- University of Technology Sydney

Borrowing from the Library
The library works on an honour system. It's a small, but highly-specialised collection that's continually being updated.
You can borrow five books at a time for two weeks.
Short Loan Collection
Books that are in high demand are placed in the short loan collection. A "red label" on the spine of the books can identify these books. These can be borrowed for one week only.
These books are NOT FOR LOAN , but can be consulted in the library and pages photocopied.
Videos and Audiocassettes
These items are often irreplaceable and are for IN-HOUSE USE ONLY . If you wish to listen to/view any of these items please ask at the Reception Desk and they will supply you with the appropriate facilities.
Journals and Resource Folders
These are not for loan, but articles may be photocopied. There is a charge of 10c per page.
The library has reciprocal borrowing arrangements with the Unilinc Member libraries. If a book is not held at the JNI library but is available at one of these libraries it can be requested. It takes approximately a week for ordered books to arrive.
In order to maintain good relations with other Unilinc libraries the following restrictions are in place:
- Borrowers are limited to making 5 inter-library loans per semester
- We cannot order an inter-library loan on items held by JNI, even if our copy is on loan
To renew a loan, please the librarian can be contacte on or before the due date by phone or email (02) 9436 3055 / firstname.lastname@example.org Loan periods on book/s cannot be extended if previously requested by another student.
Holding Library Materials
If a book is out on loan, a hold request can be placed on that book. The borrower will be notified.
Overdue notices are sent to borrowers who have overdue books.
The library may levy fines if a borrower is either persistently late in returning book/s, or allows book/s to become very overdue.
Borrowers who have book/s long overdue mayhave their borrowing privileges suspended until all overdue items are returned and fines are paid.
In the case of loss, borrowers are responsible for purchasing replacement items.
Book donations are gratefully received. Please contact the Librarian.
