The University of Auckland is not part of this agreement. To become as reciprocal borrower apply directly at the university you wish to borrow from.

  • An alert can also be sent by text message if you have set this up.
  • A loan period of 7 days from date of borrowing or renewal is guaranteed for Main Collection items.

Replacement Charges

  • Very overdue items are regarded as Lost and you are billed for replacement costs. (Note: failure to pay may result in academic results being withheld and/or the loss of Library borrowing privileges.)
  • Replacement charges will be wiped if a lost item is later returned in good condition.

Loss of borrowing privileges

  • Item limit reached
  • 1 overdue recalled item
  • Invalid ID status
  • Lost items

Report a lost AUT ID card to Library staff immediately to avoid the possibility of costs for unauthorised use.
