The Education Library has moved into

the Central Library

The Education Library on the Dovedale campus closed on Thursday 16 November 2017. You will see the familiar faces of the Education Library Assistants behind the desk on Level 2 at Central. The Subject Librarians are based on Level 5 of the Central Library.


Kathryn, Kim, Fiona, Waitangi, and Margaret will be providing assistance wherever on campus is most convenient to our staff and students – be that in person on the Dovedale campus, at the Ātea Ako consultation space on Level 2 of the Central Library, via email or phone. Just make an appointment, email us, or call.


The classroom collection and fiction materials are moving to Level 4 of the Central Library; the academic education collections will mostly be shelved on Level 7. While the collections will be inaccessible to the public for a week or so, you can still place requests on any materials that you need and retrievals will take place daily as usual. These requests can be issued from the Central Library.


The existing returns box will be available 24/7 (and emptied daily) until the College moves into Rēhua. Any existing requests with an Education Library pick up will be transferred to Central Library pick up after the 16th November.  


We look forward to showing you around the new collection, study and service spaces in the Central Library.
