Renewals and returns
You can keep items you have on loan until the Library reopens. You will not be fined and all existing fines will be suspended.
We will automatically renew your loans 3 days before the due date.
RMIT Library returns
The returns chutes are open at Swanston and Bundoora Libraries. The chutes are external to the building, so there's no need to apply for campus access, have your temperature checked or provide details for contact tracing.
Swanston Library: Use the external return bin located outside of the entrance to Building 8, Level 2, off Swanston Street.
Bundoora Library: Use the external returns chute.
Please note: it may take up to 7 days before items are checked in and removed from your record.
Document Delivery returns
Return items borrowed via the RMIT Document Delivery Service to Swanston Library or Bundoora Library at the above times.
CAVAL and ULANZ returns
If you have borrowed from another Library as a CAVAL or ULANZ borrower, you will need to return the item/s back to that library. Please contact them first for details.
Problems with returning library loans
Let us know as soon as possible if you have any problems returning items to the Library. For example, if:
- the items are lost, stolen or damaged,
- items you have returned still appear on your record,
- you have items on your record which you have never borrowed.
Please note: Reporting an issue does not automatically mean that the Library will waive any costs that you have incurred.
