  3. There’s a Librarian who specialises in your subject. They’ll work with you to find the information you need and help get your referencing right. See your subject guide and book an appointment.
  4. Computers, pr7 Thingsinters and study spaces in the Libraries are for you to use. And the Libraries are open till late
  5. The Library is online. Follow us on Facebook, use Learn, ask with AskLIVE, join an interactive online workshop and see the website.
  6. All students are invited to explore our internationally renowned heritage collections. They’re unique to Aotearoa New Zealand and the Pacific. Visit the Macmillan Brown Library to see for yourself.
  7. Manaakitanga: Caring for people, is at the heart of everything we do. Whatever your ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education, religion or taste there’s a place for you in the Libraries. Together we’ll create a supportive environment to help you achieve your potential.
