Library services and resources to support your learning, research and teaching needs

Library news

Building Project at the Hocken Collections

An interior wall formerly surrounding Hocken’s maps and posters stack has been removed and trenching is under way to lay down rails for mobile cabinets to expand our collection space. Because of this there currently is no access to the map and posters collection, and a small part of the archives collection. Noise and disruption is also possible in the reference area.

We expect full access to resume in mid-January. Please contact for assistance. We apologise for any inconvenience.
