The Library: Overdue and Lost Items

An introduction to the Libraries at Wintec.

Overdue Library Items

Wintec Library does not charge standard overdue fines. However, items will be considered 'lost' once they are more than 28 days overdue for standard loans, or a shorter period for shorter loans

To avoid recovery action, renew or return your library material on time.

If you have any overdue items, you cannot borrow material from the Library until you have renewed or returned the items.

Fine to pay?

Fine for recalled items: If you do not return a recalled item, by its new due date, the fine is $3 a day and will continue to accumulate until you return the item.

Fine for late course reserves: If you do not return a course reserve by its new due date, the fine is $1 per hour and will continue to accumulate until you return the item.

Library fines can be paid by:

Internet banking:

Waikato Institute of Technology
Bank of New Zealand
Hamilton Branch

Please enter Library debt and your name and student ID in the reference fields.

If you have fines of $10 or more you cannot borrow material from the Library until you have paid the fine in full.
