Reference items now shelved among general collection

The Te Puna library reference books (including dictionaries and other ready reference material) are now interfiled in the general collection. This places them on the shelves according to the call number on their spines, among resources of the same subject. 

On the spine of each book, there is a "Not for Loan" sticker by the Dewey call number.
These books must remain in the library so that ākonga (students) and kaimahi (staff) can rely upon their being available.

A large collection of architecture books is labeled "Not for Loan." The Subject Librarian has placed them behind the display shelf on Level 2 as a mini 'Architecture Not for Loan' collection. As well as "Not for Loan" on the spine, the word "Architecture" is above the sticker. Further signage is still to come.

Please see the Ask Me desk if you need help locating a Not for Loan item.
