Macmillan Brown library storage scheduled maintenance (26 June – end August)

Due to an upgrade of storage areas, there will be limited access to some items from the Macmillan Brown Library collections from 26 June until the end of August 2017.

This includes some archive collections, newspapers, Māori Land Court minute books (except for South Island) and a small number of items from the Special Collections.

Macmillan Brown Library will remain open as usual during this time with most of the collections still accessible.

We apologise for any inconvenience to our users during this time. The improvements to the storage areas are intended to help us to preserve these treasured collections for future generations.

Please contact us at macbrown@canterbury.ac.nz if you have any concerns.

Please don’t leave your personal belongings unattended in the Library

in particular laptops, cellphones, wallets and backpacks. Unattended belongings attract thieves, and while many believe the risk to be small, it is real and such a loss can be devastating. Even for short trips to the copier, printer, or toilets, take them with you or have a friend sitting next to you watch them while you’re gone. The library is not responsible for the loss of personal belongings.
