All currently enrolled South West TAFE students and staff may borrow books, magazines and other resources from the South West TAFE Library. Please present your current student or staff card each time you wish to borrow.

Students and staff from other institutions who are members of the CAVAL reciprocal borrowing scheme are also welcome to borrow books and magazines from the collection.

In addition, members of the community are more than welcome to use material in the collection on-site. A fee-based membership scheme is available for members of the community who wish to become borrowers. For further details, and assistance please contact the Library in person, by phone or via email.
