Cate BardwellThis service is provided by Subject Librarians, Kaitiaki Pukapuka, who have expertise in research, resource management and teaching support.

The Liaison Service actively supports academic staff and post graduate students’ research, teaching and learning and fosters communication between Library and the Divisions.

Subject Librarians also advise on library services and policies and represent academic needs and interests to the Library, connecting staff to support services available.
