When you are studying from a distance, it is important to plan ahead. Allow plenty of time, in case the materials and/or the help you need is not immediately available.
For general information about borrowing items from the Library (including loan limits and lengths) please see our Borrowing Information page.
Keeping track of what you have out and when they are due back is important if you want to avoid overdue fines and penalties.
If your record is blocked at any stage (for overdue books and/or fines), we will hold any requests for 5 days while we notify you and to allow you to resolve the issue.
Note: An Address Redirection with NZPost does not apply to CourierPost parcels.
Please let us know immediately if you have moved as we send your requests out via CourierPost. Delivery is overnight to most cities, sometimes longer if you live in a Rural Delivery (RD) area. You will need to ensure the courier driver has access to a safe place to leave your books.
If you are having difficulty or issues with delivery/return of materials at any time, please contact us as soon as possible. If we are aware of the situation, we can most likely do something to help.
Please post your books back at least 3 working days before the due date.
Books are returned to us using the NZPost ParcelPost Returns service.
Please do not include any correspondence or payments with the books, as these are processed by another section in the Library.
More information is available on our Fine Rates, Overdues & Charges page.
