There is a maximum of five interlibrary loans in process at any one time. Requested items can only be collected from Dandenong or Springvale library and are not transferrable within the Libraries Victoria.

There is no charge for interlibrary loans obtained from public libraries in Victoria, however, academic and private libraries charge a fee for lending their materials. Users will be notified beforehand if there is a fee.
