The New UC Library Catalogue is Coming!

From Wednesday 8 February accessing library resources will look a bit different. The library will be introducing our new catalogue.

You’ll be able to access the same great range of resources for your study and research, but with a fresh, modern design, and some new features to enhance the way you find and use library resources.

The new saved lists and searches feature will save you time and headspace, with all your past searches and saved resources instantly available in a single click. The streamlined search functionality and modernised interface will make finding study materials a breeze.
You can also request, 
renew and manage your loans just as you did before, as well as searching wider and further on MultiSearch in just the same way. It’s the old catalogue, same resources, but newer, better and with much, much more!

The old catalogue link will remain available (in the new catalogue footer) for a while.
We still have some work to do updating links in LEARN, library websites and other UC places so you may still see the old catalogue in places for a time.  Both will work for searching, requesting and managing your account but we recommend using the new catalogue for saving lists of items.

Further enhancements will be introduced after the initial debut and your feedback is very welcome.

Inspirational Cantabs installed on campus

Sculptures of 12 individuals who had, or continue to have, a huge impact on Canterbury’s creative, business, health and sporting life have been installed on campus to celebrate UC’s 150th anniversary this year. They were at the Arts Centre before the earthquakes but have not been out in public since. The 12 were originally chosen by the Local Heroes Trust and sculpted by artist Mark Whyte who studied here at UC. Canterbury Museum have kindly loaned the sculptures to UC for our anniversary (actually for two years).

Most of the Twelve Local Heroes have ties to UC, showing the strong connections between the uni and the city. Half of the local heroes received honorary doctorates from UC, including political, social and local community activist, well-loved historian and writer, Elsie Locke, and father of the electronics and radio-communications industry in Christchurch Angus Tait, who also have buildings named after them.

Four are UC alumni including world-famous writer of magical stories and verse for children and young adults Margaret Mahy, artist, painter and craftsman William Sutton (who also taught here), founder of diabetes research Donald Beaven and, again, Elsie Locke.
