ULANZ Reciprocal Borrowing Scheme


University Libraries of Australia and New Zealand (ULANZ) is a Library borrowing scheme that allows staff and students of New Zealand and Australian Universities to borrow in person from any other participating university library.  The scheme is a cooperative agreement between CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) and CONZUL (Council of New Zealand University Librarians).


The following New Zealand universities are members of ULANZ or you can click here for a complete list of ULANZ participating libraries.

The University of Auckland is not participating in the ULANZ scheme.

Services Available to Massey University Staff and Students

Massey University staff and students may borrow in person from any of the ULANZ libraries. See the registration information and services available for ULANZ members, or contact each library for further details.

Registration with Massey University Library

Registration with Massey University Library must be in person. Please bring your staff or student ID card to the Service Point as well as documented proof of your status as a current staff member or enrolled student e.g confirmation of enrolment letter.  You will need to provide your local and term address, phone number(s) and email address. A Massey University Library record will be created for you at no charge, and will expire in February of the following year or sooner, depending on your enrolment or employment status at your ULANZ member library.

There is no fee associated with ULANZ registration.

Borrowing from Massey University Library

Please bring your photo ID from your university when borrowing. You may borrow a total of up to 40 books, with a loan period of 2 weeks (note that high demand books may be issued for shorter periods). You may request books that are already issued, or held at another Massey University Library. Books should be returned to the Massey University Library they were borrowed from.

Students with overdue books that have been requested by another borrower i.e. in high demand or are short loans will be fined and all borrowers will be blocked from borrowing when items are 10 days overdue or fines exceed $45.

Note that serials and reference-only items are not for loan.


You can expect assistance from the Library’s Service Point in finding your way around and finding relevant information. However, please note that priority may be given to Massey University staff and students during busy periods.

Photocopying & Scanning

You may use the photocopying facilities. A card may be purchased from the Library for 60 cents and then money is loaded onto the card. This card is reusable and may be used at any Massey University campus library.  You can scan to email or USB for no charge.


Interlibrary loan, document delivery and any distance services are the responsibility of the home library.

Access to licensed electronic resources is restricted to current Massey University staff and students, and not extended to ULANZ members. Visitor access to a limited range of databases is available within campus libraries. Further information: Walk-in Resources Walk-in Resources (223 KB)
