Library support and services

The Library provides reference and information services, and produces instructional guides and resources, to assist students to find and effectively use information.

Here are the faces of your friendly supporters:


We specialise in:

Research assistance

You can ask for advice about how to research, including finding resources, writing and referencing.

Access to resources

You can request an article you need for an assignment if you cannot access it (subject to License agreements).

Face to face online meetings

You can request a face to face online meeting with a professional librarian. Our conference platform is ZOOM. Once we set up a time to meet, you will get a link to start the meeting.

Librarians are available to meet you from 9:00AM to 5:00PM New Zealand Time (GMT+12 DST), or they can be contacted via Library chat or by emailing [email protected].

Where to find resources

Researching for assignments can take place at any time of the day or night. This is why we have put together a collection of online guides covering Waikato Reading Lists, Library Search and other ways to access resources through the Library. These guides can be accessed at your leisure.

You can also reach out to our friendly and knowledgeable Librarians via Library chat during business hours, or by emailing [email protected].

Guides to read before you start:

Waikato Reading Lists

Your most essential readings are available at Waikato Reading Lists. Make sure you log in to the Reading List website to read online articles with your University of Waikato username and password. Forgotten your username or password?

Library Search

To find resources beyond the reading lists (see above), go to Library Search on the Library homepage to search through our online resources.

Each video guide below has English subtitles.

Subject Portals and Digital Collections

Check the Subject Portals for your subject to find more resources. There is also an abundance of resources available via the Library website, including material digitised by the Library.
