Services for Staff

Unitec Library staff are experts in information management. As curators of information and content we provide advice and knowledge solutions for our diverse and dynamic community.

Knowledge Specilalist services for staff

Each department has a library knowledge specialist, who acts as a link between the library and departments' academic staff.

  • Personal library orientation. Contact your library knowledge specialist 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.
  • If you are off-campus or part-time we encourage you to use email or phone to contact us.
  • Information resources, especially electronic ones, are constantly changing and developing. In the end-of-semester breaks, we run refresher courses on the resources and sessions on new resources. If that doesn't suit you, 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 reference management software such as Mendeley and Zotero.
  • We need your help to ensure our collections are up to date and relevant. Contact your library knowledge specialist with any recommendations.
  • NB. The Library is no longer responsible for ordering teaching texts. For information on how to order teaching texts please refer to your departmental administrator.
