Oral Health: Placement students

Welcome! from the Distance Library team

The Distance Library Team

  • Any student studying a Distance paper through the University of Otago  is eligible to use the Distance  Library Service.
  • There is no cost for any Distance Library service
  • We will scan a book chapter or journal article and supply it to you via email within 48 hours
  • Books are sent via courier and we include a freepost label so there will be no charge for return postage
  • We will email and let you know if there is going to be a delay
  • All library messages go to your student email account so if you do not check it regularly set up an auto forward within PIMS - My details - Email forwarding

Students on Placement

Students who are enrolled in an on-campus paper but go out of Dunedin on placement can use the distance service. This includes RMIP students.

    NB:  You cannot use the library catalogue to request a book.  You need to use the Distance Library Request form

    The FIRST time you place a request, please use the notes field to let the Distance staff know that you are on placement.
