Queries will be treated in confidence.
We are glad to provide reference assistance, library instruction or answer brief factual queries. We will not conduct research for you, but rather assist you in locating the information you need. For complex or detailed questions you may be asked to speak directly with a reference librarian.
If you want to know whether the Library has a specific item, please check the Online Catalogue first. If you want to request a specific book or journal article from another library, please check with Interlibrary Loan. The USP Library complies with the Fiji Copyright Act.
If you have other non-reference questions, please consult the USP Library FAQ first.
Email response to questions typically takes one to five working days. If your need is immediate, please phone or visit the library.
Help us help you. Please describe your information need in detail. Include what you need the information for, the depth, the scope (e.g. time period, place) of your topic.
Be specific. For example, don’t say “I need to know about copra production in the Pacific,” when you really want to find statistics about copra exports from the Marshall Islands.
