About the tutorials

Getting started at the library

These tutorials are designed to help you get started with library resources online. They'll step you through checking your card and searching the catalogue (and more), as well as using our online databases to access newspaper and magazine articles and browse other information available online.

We've divided these tutorials into Getting Started, and Extra for Experts, and our Getting Started tutorials are all printable - so you can follow along.

As always - if you have any problems, we'd love to help. You can email us here.

Here are some links to video tutorials other libraries have created (for shared resources). Although these have been created by other libraries, they give some great tips and excellent introductions to these resources.

Note: As a Wellingtonian, you can access these resources on our Online Databases page - use the A-Z Index to find the resource you want by name.
