The AUT University Library comprises three campus libraries, each of which provides services for teaching, learning and research in a single facility. See the Campus Libraries page for detailed information on each library.
In each Library there are:
The adaptive technology rooms are managed by the Disability Resource Service and contain technology to assist students with hearing or sight impairments. The Disability Resource Service can be contacted on 921 9999 ext 8262 or 8203 for assistance with the equipment.
There are parents study rooms in the City Campus and North Shore Campus Libraries which are available to students who are accompanied by young children. The rooms are equipped with a PC for student use and a television with a DVD player, toys and books for the children. Children may not be left unaccompanied in this room or anywhere else in the Library.
Group study rooms are available at all three Campus Libraries. They can be booked for two hours at a time through the open access computer lab booking system. You need your network login and password to do this.
There is a self-access learning lab in each library containing various learning materials such as DVDs, mathematics and English self-help resources and resources for IELTS preparation. Students are able to use these resources during the Library opening hours. Te Tari Awhina staff are available across the span of Library opening hours at the City Campus Library.
The Library Teaching Laboratories are used for teaching a range of workshops as part of our Information Literacy Programme. When the labs are not being used for teaching the PCs in them are available for students to use.
Postgraduate Study Rooms are provided in the Library buildings on the City and North Shore campuses. Both rooms are open 24/7 and access is by swipe card only. Currently enrolled postgraduate students may obtain a swipe card from the security office (City - WO203; North Shore - AT101). Facilities include a kitchen with fridge and microwave, comfortable seating and a telephone for internal calls. There are individual study spaces with power points, networked computers and a printer/photocopier (normal charges apply). Wireless Internet access is also available. These facilities are provided to be shared and users are expected to respect the needs of others. There is an online booking system for the computers to assist in the fair sharing of these resources.
The Postgraduate Study Rooms are not intended for group study so, if you need to work with other students on a group project, you should book one of the Library Group Study Rooms.
The open access computer labs and printers are managed by the ITS staff. All the networked computers in the Library print to a central printer that uses the student internet payment (SIP) account.
For assistance with computer hardware and software, and for managing internet accounts, and for the loan of wireless laptops.
Printsprint is responsible for the management and maintenance of the photocopiers in the Library. There are a number of photocopiers in each Library, some are coin operated and the majority use the student internet payment (SIP) account system where credit is loaded onto the AUT ID card. There is a Printsprint service desk at the City Campus Library, which offers a number of services such as overhead transparencies, binding, laminating, scanning and assistance with photocopying.
