Short Term Loan

  • Items in high demand are moved to the Short Term Loan category which means that the loan period is reduced to a 2 day or 4 hour loan period.
  • 2-day loan items are filed amongst the Main collection with 4-hour loans held behind the Service Desk.
  • Journal articles or book chapters should be placed in E-Readings
  • Items are removed from the Short Term Loan category at the end of each semester.


Check Library Search. The record will show item located at Campus Short Term Loan.
Intercampus borrowing between Casuarina, Palmerston and Waterfront is permitted for 2-day loans but Interlibrary Loan or distance requests are not allowed.
