If you require material for your research or studies that is not available in the Wintec Library, we can usually request it from another library.
Who can use this service?
Enrolled students and staff at Wintec can request interloaned material.
How long will it take for an interloan to arrive?
Delivery times cannot be guaranteed as they are dependent on a number of factors outside of the Library's control. On average, time from placing the request to delivery is 1-5 days for journal/serial articles and 3-14 days for books.

How do I receive my Interloan?
Delivery of the interloan material will depend on what you request:
Staff and students based outside of the Hamilton area meeting the distance services criteria will be sent their interloans directly—just remember to select the distance option on the request form and fill in your address.
Articles may be requested for research or private study only. Copies cannot be put on Moodle or copied for students. No more than one article from a particular journal, or two if they are on the same subject, may be obtained at any one time. Contact the Library for further information.
