Library books and other resources will be located on shelves throughout levels 1, 2 and 3 of the building. Students can borrow books and journals themselves, using the self-service machines that will be located on each level. 

Group Study Rooms

Several group study rooms are located in the New Hub for student use. To book a room students will use the Group Study Room Booking System. Access the booking system via the Student Portal under 'Useful Links' or via the library website home page under 'Popular Resources').

Hub Library Collection Moving

The Library collection (including books. journals and other items) will be moved from both the existing Hub Library (B110) and the Hub Library Storage area (B114) during the second week of the mid-year break. The Hub Library will close while the move happens and re-open in the new Student Hub at beginning of semester 2.

The collection from B110 will be located across Levels 1 - 3 of the new Hub as follows:

Level 1: Books in Dewey Decimal classes range 000s to 500s, Journals, Reference books, Recreational Reading books, New books and journals, and Course Reserve.

Level 2: Books in Dewey Decimal  class 600s

Level 3: Books in Dewey Decimal classes 700s to 900s, and the Maori Collection

The library items currently in storage in B114 will be moved to a new compacta storage room in the basement of the new Hub building. From 24 July onwards to borrow items in storage simply follow the usual procedure and make an online request for the item via  LibrarySearch
