New Resources in Our Library
We're constantly adding course related books, magazines, videos and CDs to our collections. When you visit the library ask about our new books. Contact our librarians: to recommend a book for purchase, or get email alerts for new books in your subject area. Visit the new book display at Porirua and Auckland Campus libraries. Items on display are changed regularly.
Be inspired, see this animation: "Where books come to life": YouTube, Going West by Maurice Gee. Also available on shelf in our library.
