Postgraduate Resources

Postgraduate Library Resources

The library provides an extensive range of scholarly resources for students studying at a postgraduate level.  The resources are complemented by the growing acquisition of ebooks and historical materials available from the New Zealand Baptist Archive.

New Zealand Libraries’ Catalogue (Te Puna Search)
This catalogue lists publications currently held in all of New Zealand’s libraries. Searching it will help you find out which New Zealand libraries have copies of the item you’re interested in.  There is also a link available on Carey library catalogue.

Books or journal articles that are not available in the Carey library or from its online databases can be interloaned from other libraries for students doing post-graduate studies through Carey.  Requests should be submitted by email ([email protected]) including bibliographic details and an indication of when the item is needed by. Typically, an interloaned item will take between 3 days to 2 weeks to arrive. You will be notified when it is available, and can be collected from the library front desk or posted out to distance students.  Cost per interloaned item is $5.  There may be a restriction on the number of interloans that can be requested.

Postgraduate students may wish to use Zotero to manage their citations and bibliography.  Zotero is a free reference manager programme.  For more information please go to their site:
