The Library: Reciprocal Borrowing

Helpful information about library resources, staff, borrowing and more

Reciprocal Borrowing

Wintec Library has reciprocal arrangements with the University of Waikato Library and the Waikato DHB Library. Please note there are different agreements with each Library.

University of Waikato Library:  Wintec staff and students may borrow books from this Library, eResources cannot be accessed or borrowed. Show them your Wintec ID card and ask to have a reciprocal borrowing account set up.


Waikato DHB Library: Wintec staff may borrow from the DHB Library, show your Wintec ID card and ask to register as a Reciprocal Borrower (no charge).  Wintec nursing students are welcome to come to the DHB Library to study, read print books and journals onsite. Wintec nursing students may apply for short term Reciprocal Borrower status. This allows some restricted borrowing of print resources (charges apply $60 for six months, $100 for twelve months).


Wintec Library: Waikato University staff and students and Waikato DHB staff may borrow from the Wintec Library.

Borrowing rights are restricted to:

  • Books

Borrowing excludes:

  • Audio-visual material
  • Course reserve collections
  • Databases and eResources
  • Interlibrary loan service
  • Off-campus materials
  • Serials
  • Renewals, recalls and reservations

Please observe each institutions individual library policies (see each library's website for details)

Reciprocal borrowers may NOT recall books, but anything you borrow can be recalled from you at any time. A recall means that another borrower has requested the book. The Library will email you if this happens, and let you know the new due date. Failure to return the book by this new due date will incur fines at the recall rate.
