NUIG - GMIT Reciprocal Library Access Scheme


The NUIG - GMIT Reciprocal Library Access Scheme will pilot between Sept 1st and Dec 31st 2012.
Initially, this scheme will be open to all NUI Galway staff and research post graduate students, who will have external patron status in the GMIT Library. Our users will be able to borrow 5 items for 1 month from GMIT, for which they will need to produce an NUI Galway ID card. Regular Library rules, such as overdue fines and payment for lost items, will apply.
