We have made a small upgrade to Ngā Kete to improve the way search results are displayed, add further source systems to the search scope and generally improve functionality.

How will it affect me?

Next time you log on, you will notice some changes to Ngā Kete:

  • The design has been improved to make it display and respond better across all devices, particularly tablets.
  • You will be able to search two additional websites: http://www.literacyandnumeracyforadults.com/ and http://engineeringe2e.org.nz/
  • You can apply all search filters with one click – look for these buttons on the left-hand side of Ngā Kete and Tuia search screens:

  • You can customise the number of results displayed – the default is between 20 to 50 but you can change this to suit
  • You can rename favourites, both when you create them, and from your ‘My favourites’ page:
