How we can help you with research

Our Research centres, Research Central (Central City Library) and Research South (Manukau Library) have specialists to help you with family history, whakapapa research and local history.

If you have a research enquiry, send us as much detail as you can and one of our research librarians will review your enquiry and contact you. 


If you want to access items in our heritage collections, book an appointment for the reading room and let us know which material you want to view. 


Select from one of the two options below to know more and fill in the appropriate form.
