Library update - how we can help (Sept 2021)

The Research Library team would like to let you know what we are able to keep doing while we are all working from home. 

There are some services we have had to suspend while we are not able to access books and journals in our libraries. That doesn't mean we can't help in a number of other ways and they are listed here. 

Feel free to reach out to us through the Library inbox: library@tepapa.govt.nz. We can also use Teams to deliver training or discuss your research and welcome you to get in touch if you would like to know more. 

We will review the services that are currently suspended regularly as the situation evolves and update you accordingly.
