English abstract

Exam papers have always been a heavily used resource in University of Auckland libraries. Prior to 2001 the library provided hard copies of exam papers in all its 15 libraries. These were heavily used at all times of the year, especially in the weeks leading up to exams. In 1996 the University Library first began to explore the possibility of providing past exam papers electronically to University students and staff. In 2001 a trial pilot project was carried out, which was successful resulting in the creation of ‘ExamBase’. ExamBase ( contains past exam papers from 2001 onwards in PDF format, searchable by course code, department and title/semester keyword. It is a popular and heavily used resource. This paper outlines the trial project, the current system, issues involved and future developments.
