My name is Katie Levendis, and I am one of the Takawaenga Kaitiaki Wharepukapuka/Liaison Librarians for the Centre for Business and Enterprise and the Centre for Information Technology. It’s my job to help you with your library learning needs: navigating the library and library website, searching for and identifying good quality resources, and using databases. I also teach research skills, information literacy, and APA referencing.
My educational background is in languages and linguistics, and I have worked in various libraries around Waikato. I have the unlikely distinction of having studied at every university on the North Island, so I am familiar with getting used to new and unexpected ways of studying!
I love meeting people from all walks of life and different countries. I am also passionate about supporting ākonga/students to develop independent library and research skills in their chosen fields. If you have any library, research, or referencing questions, you can send me an email, book a 1-on-1 appointment, or come find me in the library. I’d love to sit down with you and help you get started.
