Borrowing and interloans

Current Lincoln University staff and students can borrow from our collections and request an interloan using their ID card.

The following services are available to all library members.

  • Borrowing – All members can borrow books, serials and audio-visual material. Loan periods vary, depending on the item to be borrowed. You will receive a loan receipt letter emailed to your Lincoln University email with a record of the items borrowed and their due dates.
  • Item requests – All members can place a request for an item that is currently on loan using LibrarySearch.  Any item on loan may be recalled if it is required urgently for any reason.
  • Date due reminders – You will receive an email reminder from LTL to your Lincoln University email, unless we have another preferred email.
  • Library cards – University ID cards double as your library card and are issued by the library.

Staff and postgraduates may request items from other libraries via the interloans service.

Members are also eligible to register for the ULANZ borrowing scheme (an on-site borrowing scheme) for participating New Zealand and Australian university libraries.
