General Library collection changes update

Work continues in Te Herenga Mātauranga Whānui | General Library on our collection layout. The end result will be one Dewey sequence with the collection starting on Level 2 of the building and finishing on Level 6 with the 900s. There will also be more space for student study.

Level 2 closed from Tuesday 15 November

We are now up to changes on Level 2. The floor will be closed from Tuesday 15 November 2022 to allow the shelves to be changed, ready for books in the range 000-359. This closure has no impact on access to the current collection.

Coming up in December and January

In December and January, excess shelving will be removed from Levels 1, M and 5. These floors will be closed for a few days at a time and signs will be in place; we recommend you study on other floors as it may be noisy.

As part of this collection work, books with low use and older journals have been moved to the 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.

We are here to help

We appreciate that it might be difficult to find items during the move. If you are unable to locate something, please:

  • Check the Catalogue to see if the location is General Library or On-Demand Collection
  • Ask at the Helpdesk on Level G or place a request for the item via the Catalogue.
