ProQuest One Business database now available


Happy New Year! We are welcoming in 2022 by signing up for a new specialised business database, ProQuest One Business(external link). This database provides access to all aspects of research, teaching, and learning in business and economics. 

You will probably already be familiar with the ProQuest Central(external link) suite of databases which we have had available for your research needs since time began.  We hope you enjoy this new business addition.


Happy and safe holidays to all 


NMIT Learning Centre staff wish everyone a safe and happy holiday and Christmas time.  Enjoy the sunshine and your family and friends, new and old.


New Safety video database Safetycare(external link)  


This week we are excited to be trialing a new video database, Safetyhub(external link), which offers access to a video library of 130 safety training videos - how to use a circular saw, an angle grinder, how to lift safely, and a few more gritty ones too.  Whether you are studying building, engineering, or need to know health and safety information for any area of your study, these short videos can help you.

Please contact the library if you can not access the Safetyhub database via these links.


Emailing of loan receipts


From Monday 29 November 2021 we are sending our Help Desk receipt printers in the Nelson Library in to retirement.  This means that when you are issued Library items by our friendly Help Desk staff, your current loans receipt will automatically be emailed to you instead of printed out.

Marlborough Library has never used a receipt printer, so Nelson Library will be joining their camp.

This sees the end of printed loan receipts littering bedroom floors around the district.
