Library Reservations

AIM's extensive business and management library is a benefit of membership. If you are a Personal or Corporate member, making a reservation on books and audio-visual materials is as simple as emailing or phoning (07) 3227 4808.

Personal and Corporate Members may reserve a total of 4 items.

Please include:

  • Your full name and membership number (your member ID, if known)
  • Your contact telephone number
  • The title and author of each item required

If your membership has lapsed or if you wish to become a member you can do so online. Once you have completed membership and payment details our library staff will process your request.
