The New Zealand Interloan Scheme, jointly administered by LIANZA and the National Library of New Zealand, is a cooperative for libraries wishing to share their collection resources for the benefit of their customers and the people of Aotearoa New Zealand. 

Interloans are conducted through Te Puna Interloan, the National Library's web-based interloan management system for the request and supply of resources between libraries. 

You can find out more about the Interloan Scheme and how it operates in the Interloan Handbook (PDF, 223Kb)

Interloan Billing Service (IBS) is a centralised billing service that supports charging for national (IBS) and trans Tasman (IIBS) interloans.

More information and the IBS Transactions Not Processed reports can be found on Te Puna Interloan page of the National Library website
