Library / Pataka Pukapuka

Trying to find relevant information for your study and assignments can be like trying to find your way through a maze of seemingly dead ends! We help by providing:

  • resources that have been bought specifically to support BTI courses. These include books, print journals, and online resources that Google won’t find
  • staff who can help you find your way through the ‘maze’
  • small group workshops on topics you need help with
  • a range of ‘how to’ guides – help on topics such as search strategies, using the library catalogue, using journal databases, renewing books etc
  • a postal service for out-of-town distance students.
