Help for Creative Arts and Industries students using library resources

The Fine Arts and Architecture and Planning collections are in their new home in the Library. The Catalogue shows where items are now shelved. Visit the General Library and view the new locations.

  • Level 4, collections, Dewey numbers 700-779 – browse the fine arts and architecture books and journals in regular use. Also on this floor are the Large Books, shelved on the last two rows after the Main Collection. The latest Fine Arts journals are displayed on your right as you enter Level 4. Older journals are shelved with the books according to their Dewey number.
  • Level G, collections – here you will find material relating to New Zealand or the Pacific within the New Zealand and Pacific Collection. Material relating to Māori can be found in the Mātauranga Māori Collection and new books are around the corner on the new books display.
  • Level G, Helpdesk – ask here for 2-hour short loan items and DVDs (look for the “I”, information icon, on the floor plan).
  • Special Collections – provide mediated access to special collections materials, including Artists’ Books, Fine Arts and Architecture Archives, the New Zealand Ephemera Collection (artist and gallery files), Measured Drawings, Sheppard Collection, and the Architecture Folio and Historical collections.
  • On-Demand Collection – use this service to request low-use items. Requests are placed via the Catalogue. Theses are also by request via the Catalogue.
