New on RBdigital

New eMagazines on RBdigital!

April is the month we renew our RBdigital magazine subscriptions. We use the renewal process as an opportunity to review our collection, see what's not working, and look at adding new titles.

There's always a few cancellations too - either by us (due to performance) or by RBdigital as sometimes magazines are no longer available (this is beyond our control).

This year we've added 18 exciting new titles including The Economist, Metro NZ, Minecraft World Magazine, Nadia, National Geographic Kids, and North & South. Check out our full range of eMagazines on RBdigital.

Please Note: RBdigital was formerly called Zinio. The Zinio for Libraries app is being discontinued from 17 April. If you're still using the old app make sure you download the new RBdigital app on Google Play or the Apple App Store. Your username and password remain the same and you won't lose any of your previously checked out content.

The Source of our Resources

The Sources of Our Resources

Fresh Water in Aotearoa with Dr Stewart Cameron
New Zealand's clean water is world famous, yet water resources are becoming scarce as changing climate, growing irrigation needs, and images of pollution from farming and urbanisation takes its toll. Dr Stewart Cameron will discuss our fresh water aquifers, how we estimate the amount of water they hold, how water is allocated, what GNS Science is doing to monitor groundwater quality, and the challenges we face in the coming years to counteract past pollution activities.

This talk will have a New Zealand Sign Language interpreter from Deaf Aotearoa.

War Memorial Library Thursday 3 May, 6pm-7pm

This talk is part of The Sources of Our Resources, a series of science seminars from GNS Science to inform, educate, and raise awareness of New Zealand's unique natural resources. For more information on upcoming talks see The Sources of Our Resources.
