The University of Namibia Library provides an inter-lending and document supply service to staff and postgraduate students of the institution, by obtaining photocopies, books and/or micro material not available in the Library, from other institutions in southern Africa, as well as worldwide. On the same principle, the Inter-lending and Document Supply Section of the Library provides photocopies, books and/or micro material to other institutions in southern Africa and worldwide.
