Unitec Library welcomes you to your postgraduate study. We recognise that postgraduate study means you will need to study your subject at a deeper level and will be more research based. This guide will give you an overview of the extra library services available to postgraduate students. We urge you to make maximum use of the library and approach staff for help at any time.
Each department has a liaison librarian, who acts as a link between the library and post-graduate students, and provides the following services:
- Personal library orientation. Contact your liaison librarian for a personal library orientation and introduction to our services and resources. This also gives us an opportunity to find out about your information needs.
- Information resources, especially electronic ones, are constantly changing and developing. We run an annual refresher course on the resources, sessions on new resources and we can tailor a personal session just for you anytime.
- We are experts in finding information. We suggest you discuss your research with us early in the research process.
- We regularly run sessions on EndNote.
Theses from other universities are interfiled in the general collection and may be borrowed.
