Library Services at Tauranga

The Library service desk is located in the 24 Hour computer lab on level 1 (TCBD 1.03) of the Tauranga campus. There are qualified Librarians available to assist.

See Open Hours for current Library Hours.


There is a small, dynamic, high-demand, collection of books held at Tauranga, supported by the full range of our e-resource collections. All library resources can be found by using Library Search.

Tauranga staff and students may also access hard-copy material from the Hamilton campus collection, which will be sent across on the daily shuttle service.

Requesting items

Where possible the Library has acquired e-versions of books and journals. If an ebook (or journal) is available Library Search will link to it. You can request a print copy from the Hamilton campus via Library Search.

See the Requests, Renewals & Recalls for instructions on how to do this.

Journal Articles and Book Chapters

Use Library Search to access full text online journal articles. If it is only available in print, email [email protected], we will scan and email the article to you. Please include as much information about the journal article as possible in your email. The Library can also scan and email a chapter from a print book.

For more information on borrowing from the Library, please see Borrowing Information.
