The Library has a wealth of information resources to support learning and research. With over a million print titles and more than 275,000 e-resources (ebooks and active ejournal subscriptions) to choose from, we provide a range of tools to help you get started on the best path to discovery.


The Library, often in partnership with other Australasian universities, provides access to a steadily growing collection of scholarly resources.

New Books and Journals

Digital Collections

Open access collections of digitised materials focus on New Zealand and Waikato history, opening New Zealand content up to the world.


The Library provides access to databases covering a range of fields and disciplines for enrolled students and staff. A subset of these databases is available for Waikato Alumni.
