Getting started at your library
Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Tumu Herenga! A warm welcome to everyone who is preparing to join us!
You can start borrowing from the University of Auckland library once you have your Campus Card. You can request books to click and collect, access our electronic collections, and connect to databases, using the Catalogue. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we will track it down for you wherever it is in the world.
But there’s a lot more to the library, Te Tumu Herenga, than our collections.
