What do I get?

The Library has historical and current collection strengths in Catholic theology, canon law, spirituality, philosophy and Biblical studies.  Being the oldest established Catholic Library in New Zealand, the historical depth of collecting is a particular feature.  Large collections of works, many in French, were brought by Marist missionaries to New Zealand. There is a full range of ebooks and periodicals in these subject areas.

How do I discover these resources?

The online catalogue is searchable by anyone using a range of devices. Access to ebooks requires a member login – ebooks are also searchable from the e-resources link.
Getting help:  contact the Librarian with any questions you may have.
