Longer loans for journals

We recognise that it can take longer than three days to read a journal/magazine/serial. Journals can now be loaned for 3 weeks (if another person has not requested it). The loan is for 1 week with 2 automatic renewals of 1 week.

The journals are shelved alongside books of the same Dewey numbers in boxes in order of year of publication.

A few journals cannot be borrowed, but these are clearly labelled as Not for Loan, with most of the journal collection available to staff and students.

You can find out if we have a specific journal title by searching the library catalogue LibrarySearch and by browsing the library shelves.

The most recent issues are on a display shelf at the front of Te Puna and on a new journals display shelf in Waitākere library.

Check out the library website for more details about borrowing rules and limits.

The change of loan length will take effect for journals issued after 15 November 2022.

If you have any questions, please email library@unitec.ac.nz.
