Magazine requests made easier

Image
As of Monday 9 April it will be much easier to request your favourite magazines!

Our catalogue display will now let you view copies of a particular issue of a magazine in expandable lists, making it easier to browse for the magazine issue you're looking for. Additionally, when you click request you will find it much easier and faster to select your desired issue.

Our staff are working through all our magazine titles as quickly as possible - if your usual read hasn't become easier to request, don't worry - it soon will be!

If you need help with requesting magazines, or would like to go through the process with a staff member, chat to your local librarian, or contact us online or over the phone at 09 377 0209.
