Ask a Librarian

We have experienced librarians ready to help Unitec staff and students with their information questions. We can help with finding books, journal articles, searching information databases, and they can also answer your questions about services the library offers.

Use one of the methods below that best suits your needs.

  • Live Help

    Select this service by clicking on the orange image in the column on the left. It is found on every Unitec Library page, some of our database search pages and on our Unitec Library Facebook page. If the button is not visible, there are no librarians available to answer your question.

    Click on this button to access live help. It is also on some of our database search pages and on our Unitec Library Facebook page.

    When you click on this button, a new window will open. Type your question in the box marked "Type here to chat" and press 'Enter' on your keyboard. A librarian will respond to your question, and be available to chat with you until your question has been answered.

    The Live Help service is available during library opening hours, until 30 minutes before closing.

    [Note that this service is for staff and students only. If you are not from Unitec you can try the National Library service.]
