Massey University Library offers alumni a 50% discount on membership. For only $100 per year you can have the same borrowing privileges as an undergraduate distance student. Borrow books in person or have them delivered to you anywhere in New Zealand. Contact the Alumni Relations Office for more information.
This membership does not include access to electronic resources (electronic journals, article databases and reference resources) as licence agreements limit access to University staff and enrolled students only. ‘Walk-in access’ is available at Auckland, Wellington and Palmerston North libraries (Hokowhitu and Turitea), for individuals who are able to visit in person, and where licences permit.
Retired staff have free Library membership.
A list of resources available and more information about Library services for alumni and retired staff can be found on The Library for Visitors page.
