All building works identified in the detailed structural assessment of Te Kete Wānanga (the Whitireia Learning Centre (Library) have now been completed.
Along with the work that was required to be carried out as a result of the assessment, we also took the opportunity to replace the carpet throughout the building and purchase new shelving and have this installed. The new carpet is down and the shelving is in. So, we are pleased to advise that we are now in a position to re-open Te Kete Wananga on Monday 27 March. It is important to note, that when the building does re-open on Monday, study spaces will be available as will computers and staff but, books will not. We are working on getting the books back in and set-up on the new shelving but this is a big task and will be completed as soon as possible.
Access to the library electronic resources through a new
portal is now complete. The library wishes to apologise for the small
window when access was not available and are very pleased to present our new
access point to the e-resources.

The earthquake on 14 November affected our Porirua campus library building and it remains closed as a precautionary measure. The date of the reopening of the library building will be dependent on the structural engineers report.
