Finding what you are looking for is not always easy. Discover the best places to find information.

Where should I start looking for information?

An excellent place to start is the University of Auckland Libraries. They hold a wealth of different types of information, for example, books, articles, journals, audio material, videos, images, TV and radio, theses, archives, and previous exam papers.

You can begin your search from your device by visiting Te Tumu Herenga | Libraries and Learning Services. There you can select from different categories depending on your need.
