Taranaki research centre/te Pua Wānanga o Taranaki Te Pua Wānanga o Taranaki (Taranaki Research Centre)
is the place where the rich history of our beautiful region can be discovered by the world. It houses an extensive non-lending book collection encompassing the Taranaki Collection, the Māori Collection, history, arts and science journals, government publications, all publications from the New Department of Statistic and the Glass Case - a series of rare books with Taranaki connections. Puke Ariki's Information Officers not only maintain these collections and resources, but also mentor and train researchers and students and provide research services. Te Pua Wānanga o Taranaki also acts as a gateway to Puke Ariki's four curated collections by providing advice on what the collections contain and arranging access to specific items. Access to the Archives is during the hours 9.00am - 5.00pm, 7 days a week (excluding public holidays).
