Distance students and the Library

The Library has been supporting Distance students for more than 30 years, as long as the University has been offering distance courses.

We understand the challenges that go with studying off-campus and have developed a guide to Library services for Distance students. You can find a link to this on the Library’s home page: Guide for Distance students

On the guide you can find information about how to request books using Library Search | Ketu, to be sent to your home address (a free service within New Zealand), and have scans of articles and book chapters emailed to you.

Visiting University of Otago campus libraries

All students who are currently enrolled can use any of the University of Otago libraries on the Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington or Invercargill campuses. All Library locations can be found via the Library website.

Visiting other New Zealand university libraries

Though the ULANZ (University Libraries of Australian and New Zealand) reciprocal borrowing agreement, you can borrow in person from other New Zealand and Australian University libraries (except the University of Auckland). For more information about reciprocal borrowing, see http://caul.edu.au/caul-programs/ulanz or visit your local university library (with your student ID).
