The High Demand collection provides Murdoch students with books and other materials selected by lecturers as required or recommended readings for courses.  The Collection is conveniently located in North Wing level 3, near the Library’s main entrance.

You can only borrow High Demand items for a short time period to ensure they are available for everyone who needs them.

Please return High Demand items through the Returns chute on the outside wall of the Library building.  You may find that your unit readings are available online through My Unit Readings.
