The University Library

The Library is the University’s gateway to knowledge, providing information and resources for its staff and students. The Library also aims to encourage a culture of lifelong learning and intellectual independence.

Library staff are available to show students and researchers how to find the information they need for their study or research, and to teach them to find information themselves.

The University Library comprises not only the buildings on campus but virtual access to library resources throughout the world. The Law Library is within the Central Library building, which is located at the centre of the campus, and the Education Library is located in building TL in the nearby School of Education.

Library services, resources, and collections include

  • knowledgeable and helpful staff
  • electronic access (both on and off the campus) to journals, databases, e-books, library catalogues, the Internet, exam papers, and other resources
  • books, journals, maps, videos, dvds and newspapers
  • theses from the University of Waikato and other institutions
  • document access and delivery from other libraries
  • places to study, photocopiers, and computers for word processing
  • a wireless network, wireless laptops for use within the Library, and network ports for other laptop use.

Brief introductory tours and essential tutorials are offered intensively during the first few weeks of each semester. Tutorial and tour timetables are available on the Library’s website and at Information Desks.

Subject Liaison Librarians offer many course-specific tutorials as requested by academic staff. They also offer drop-in subject-focused tutorials from approximately week four in each semester.
