Subject Librarians/Kaitiaki Pukapuka liaise with Departments and other campus units to support the effective use of information for research, learning, and teaching.
Subject Librarians have expertise in research practices, information resources, and teaching support.
Our primary goal is to collaborate with academic staff to foster the development of student research skills and the effective practice of academic research at all levels.
The Library has defined a set of basic research skills across five levels, designed to scaffold students to become confident, connected, and active life-long participants in their own learning. These skill levels are outlined in the University Library Research Skills Strategydocument, below. The additional documents place the Library Liaison service and practice in the context of the wider University.
Subject Librarians also advise on Library services and policies and represent academic needs and interests to the Library, connecting staff to support services available.
