Remote Library Service: Frequently Asked Questions.

Who can use the Remote Library Service?

Any student studying through the University of Otago or Otago Polytechnic living outside Dunedin is eligible to use the Remote Library Service.
Our service is used by University of Otago undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral and distance education students all over New Zealand and around the World.

How do I renew my books?

If you are a Remote student, please contact for a renewal

All on-campus borrowers can normally renew books for up to two additional loan periods, providing they have not been put on 'hold' by another borrower. You can renew your own books through the catalogue.

We're hoping to create a place to share resources and information about our library service.
