Print books, journals or DVDs listed on your Course Resources reading lists are held in the Short Loan collection in the relevant campus Library:
Be sure to get the call number for each item since you’ll need to know that to find what you want.
Find writing examples for different types of assignment and other self-help resources under the Doing Assignments menu (above).
Information on your subject guides help you find and use Library resources for your coursework.
The Library offers a range of workshops to support your study and research. Sign up for a workshop to improve your searching and writing skills.
Have your current AUT ID card with you or the AUT App ID view in order to borrow Library items. Borrowing limits and renewals vary with membership.
If an item you have borrowed is requested by someone else, it will be recalled from you. An email will be sent to your AUT email address with its shortened borrowing time.
We know that distance study has extra challenges. The Library provides services and help to support distance students. In addition, the Library works alongside AUT’s Disability Student Support to ensure students with impairments have access to all our resources.
If you live more than 50km from the nearest Campus OR have a disability AND have a current AUT ID card you can register for distance Library services.
AUT Libraries are study environments for all students with varied study spaces, computers, workshop rooms, printing and scanning facilities and Library and IT help.
To maintain an effective study environment for everyone we do ask that:
Be careful of your valuables - the library is a public space and you leave anything unattended at your own risk.
