Library Services at Tauranga
As a student you have access to the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic collections at the Bongard and Windermere campuses. Books for your courses are purchased by the University and stored in the Bongard Library so this is where you will spend most of your time. As well as this, you can supplement your reading by requesting books from the University of Waikato Library.
