Service for staff

Using your Unitec computer network login, you can access our catalogue, databases, e-books, etc via the internet both on-campus and off-campus.
To borrow items from the Unitec Library, you need your staff ID card. Please bring it with you when you come to the library.
We understand you need more books for longer and have adjusted our borrowing policies to reflect this.

We recognise that staff have special requirements when using the library and its resources.  As well as the services offered to students, staff are afforded extra services.

Specialist Subject Librarian Support

Each school has at least one Subject Librarian who acts as a link between the library and schools' academic staff.

  • Personal library orientation. Contact your Subject Librarian 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.
  • Support with the provision of course material, include course reading lists - ebooks, books and articles that students can refer to from the library catalogue.  Some of these items may be put on short loan.
  • 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 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 Subject Librarian 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.
