Ask the library a question


Are your students researching a topic? Ask the National Library of New Zealand a question online, using the Any Questions and Many Answers service. It will direct you to knowledgeable New Zealand resources - ideal for parents and students with an interest in libraries, literacy and learning.

For those unfamiliar with AnyQuestions, the service offers free online research help for all New Zealand school students. Students can log on to the website from 1pm to 6pm weekdays during the school year and via text based chat, work with a friendly librarian around a schoolwork question. 

AnyQuestions is funded by the Ministry of Education, managed by the National Library of New Zealand, and staffed by librarians who are specially trained to help students develop their ability to source and critically evaluate quality online information sources.
