What is a 'Group room'?

Specific rooms where students can study together. All Dunedin campus libraries (except Hocken Collections) have group rooms. Because they are extremely popular places, an online booking system is used.

What is 'Reserve'?

Books and DVDs that are likely to be in high demand for your course may be put on Reserve. They are loaned to you for two or three hours and can be booked for specific times online. Every library branch (excluding Hocken) has a high demand Reserve area.

How do I find a book on the shelves?

Like most academic libraries, we use the Library of Congress (LC) classification system. The videos below will show you how to use the Library catalogue (Library Search | Ketu) to find books on the shelves in any Library.
