The University Libraries of Australia and New Zealand (ULANZ) borrowing scheme  allows current students and staff of Australian and New Zealand universities to borrow in person from other participating university libraries.

The scheme is a cooperative arrangement between the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) and Council of New Zealand University Librarians (CONZUL).

Registration is done directly at the host institution, who provide you with a borrowing card. You will need to provide photo ID as well as proof of current enrolment/employment from your home university.
