How do loans work?

Most items are available for you to borrow, except for Course reserves, Reference works, and Periodicals. Before asking for a book, access the online Discovery to check the availability, the call number, and the circulation policy of the book. You can ask the librarian for assistance or pick up the book from the shelf and use the self-check stations. Books that have not been requested by other patrons can be renewed in person, by phone (06.8522.5600), via email ( or through the My Account section of the Discovery tool.
