Customer Specialist Team

As a team we contribute to offering a quality reference service across the library system, where customers who need help accessing information in particular areas can contact someone who has knowledge of the resources in those areas.

We are also responsible for assessing and responding to the information needs of the communities throughout the Wellington area.
