Borrowing between Unitec and MIT libraries

Unitec and MIT Libraries are pleased to announce that staff and students can now enjoy borrowing privileges at each others' libraries. This means that you can use your Unitec student (or staff) ID card at MIT library.

You will need to fill out a form first available here or at MIT when you go there. 
You will be allowed to borrow books and other items from their library and they do need to be returned to the MIT library.
This access is only to each library's physical collections, ie not their electronic collections.

For more detailed information on this pilot, please see http://library.unitec.ac.nz/services/unitec-and-mit.htm.
Feedback or questions may be sent to library@unitec.ac.nz or ask at any branch of the Library.
