We are making some changes to Te Herenga Mātauranga Whānui | General Library


Te Tumu Herenga | Libraries and Learning Services are making some changes to Te Herenga Mātauranga Whānui | General Library. We’re focussing on having high-use and relevant materials available for immediate browsing and moving low-use material to our On-Demand Collection. All books and journals in the On-Demand Collection can be requested via the Catalogue and are usually supplied within 24 hours. These changes will also free up some differentiated spaces for student collaborative and individual study.

New Zealand and Pacific and Mātauranga Māori collections

The first step is to move the New Zealand and Pacific and Mātauranga Māori collections to Level M (the Mezzanine). In 2021, we will consult users and other stakeholders around these collections and how they are housed.

To make room for these collections on Level M, low-use material in the 500 – 599 Dewey range will be moved to the On-Demand Collection.

Timeframes

We’re aiming to complete these initial moves over the summer in time for Semester 1 2021.

If you are unable to locate any resources, please ask at the Helpdesk or place a request on an item using the Catalogue. If you have any questions about these changes, please Ask Us.
