Barbara Rainier MEnvMgmt

Subject Librarian


I am one of a team of Health Librarians at the Manawatū campus Library, providing information and research support for the College of Health both in person and in the online learning environment. I have a particular interest in providing information sourcing and management assistance to post graduate students and staff. The ordering of nursing, social work and public health material forms part of my brief.
