Support for tauira Māori across the University of Otago Libraries
Mihi from the Library Kaiāwhina
Tēnā koutou katoa,
I tipu ake au ki Ōtepoti me Waihōpai.
Hello, my name is Lynne Knapp. I have lived in Dunedin for most of my life, but spent some of my earlier years in Invercargill. I’ve been working at the University of Otago for many years in a variety of roles. Most of this work has been based in the University of Otago Libraries. My current role is as subject librarian for the School of Biomedical Sciences.
I enjoy helping students to find useful material for their courses and to navigate library resources. I am the Library Kaiāwhina for the Health Sciences Library. So please feel free to contact me if you need any assistance (email email@example.com or ring 4797410).
Tēnā koutou katoa
I whānau au kei Te-Whanganui-ā-Tara, ā, i tipu ake au i raro iho i te maunga o Makara, i te taha o te awa o Karori. Ko Ōtepoti toku kainga inaianei.
Kia ora! I'm Alexander, one of the Library Kaiawhina for the Humanities.
I descend from scots, english, irish settlers and migrants, some of whom made their home in Ōtepoti | Dunedin. After growing up in Te Whanganui-ā-Tara | Wellington, I moved to Ōtepoti two decades ago to complete my study and now live with my partner and two children in the north of the city.
I work as a Subject Librarian based in the Central Library, supporting Languages and Cultures; English and Linguistics; Music, Theatre and Performing Arts; Media, Film and Communication. I have also worked at Te Uare Taoka o Hākena | Hocken Collections, and in the OU Science and Robertson / Education libraries.
I am here to help, and can offer Library support around finding, using, evaluating, and referencing stuff for your study and research. You’re welcome to visit me on the first floor of the Central Library, or to get in touch via phone - 03 479 7827 - or email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou katoa.
Nō Ngāti Pākeha mātou ko tōku whanau. Nō Ōtautahi ahau. Ko Scott tōku ingoa.
I’m Scott and I’m the Library Kaiāwhina for Commerce and Subject Librarian for Accountancy and Finance, Tourism, Marketing, Information Science and Economics.
I grew up in Christchurch but moved to Auckland as a teenager. My whanau moved to Dunedin in January 2019 and I started work at the University of Otago Library. Before that I was at AUT (Auckland University of Technology) Library.
I’m here to support you on your academic journey. For Library support around research, resources, data, reference management, etc. My office is in the Law Library in the Richardson Building on the 8th floor. Feel free to visit or contact me via phone or email.
