Visitors and Alumni

Membership for alumni, staff and students of many other universities, and community members enables borrowing and access to a subset of databases.

All visitors are welcome to use the Library for reading and reference purposes. We also have several categories of membership to enable borrowing from our print collection. A small subset of our database collection is also included in membership but note that most databases are licensed for Lincoln staff and students only.

Lincoln Alumni

Alumni membership for local residents enables borrowing from the print collections, and password access to a subset of databases.

The first 6 months of alumni membership is free. After this fees are:

  • 3 months - $30
  • 6 months - $60
  • 12 months - $100
  • replacement for lost cards - $30

To register for alumni membership, bring the completed application form, one form of photo ID, and payment to Library Enquiries

Staff and Students from other Universities

Staff and students of any of the ULANZ participating universities can register with us for undergraduate borrowing privileges subject to the borrowing scheme conditions and privacy statement.

There is no charge for registering as a ULANZ member. The registration period is to 28 February of the next year, and your home institution’s card will be used for borrowing from Lincoln University.

To register as a ULANZ member, bring your current staff/student ID card and a form of photo ID to Library Enquiries, where you will be asked to complete a ULANZ application form.

Community members

All visitors are welcome to use the Library for reading and reference purposes. Ask at Library Enquiries for access to copying and printing (EFTPOS only payment).

The following membership categories allow for borrowing and limited access to e-resources.

Visiting scholars and academics can be enrolled by application from their host faculty or department administrator. A charge code is required.

Community members or local residents can be enrolled by written application to the University Librarian, including reasons why from your local library would not be sufficient for your needs. Fees are:

  • 3 months – $50
  • 6 months – $90
  • 12 months – $150
  • replacement for lost cards - $30
