Hidden within our Library's catalogue and website is a treasure trove of informational and recreational digital eResources - all you need to access them is a library membership.
If you search our catalogue for information your search results will show the library's physical items held on a particular subject but on a separate tab you can also see the library's 'eResources' on that subject.
eResources include digital encyclopaedia entries, periodical/journal articles, newspaper stories and more. The eResources are also searchable by level (basic, intermediate or advanced).
You can also search these eResources by accessing each resource separately on our Digital Library page on this website. Check them out if you are researching for a uni/tech paper, NCEA assignment, or just a parent wanting safe, reliable information for your child.
If you are accessing these eResources from home you may be asked for your library membership number and PIN (defaults to your year of birth). If you are not a member of Marlborough District Libraries it is free to join for permanent residents, over 18 with valid ID.
