Why can't I find that article? Connecting to Newcastle's e-resources off campus

If you follow the links from the Library pages, most of our resources will work directly in your browser by launching the Newcastle Login Gateway. Just use your Newcastle ID and password to login.

Note: if you find information via a general search engine like Google which has no link to Newcastle’s webpages, the login gateway will not launch and you may think we don’t have the item.

To check, look the item up in LibrarySearch (just put in the journal/book/conference title) and follow the links from there.

The SAgE Library team includes: Julia Robinson, Jenny Campbell, Karen Crinnion, Anne Archer, Yvonne Davison, Susan Millican and Christina Taylor.

We are here to help you to get the best from the Library's services and resources so feel free to contact us at any time.

Becoming an informed researcher

See the Library's research web pages for more guidance on support for researchers at Newcastle.

How to get the books and journals you need

Use Library Search to look for books and journal articles. If the book/journal is available in electronic form, you will be able to access it from the links in Library Search. You will need to logon with your campus ID to get access.

If it is not available in your local libraries but it is available in print in Newcastle, you can request a scan of a maximum of 1 chapter of the book/ 1 article from a journal issue by using the Desktop Delivery Service.

If you are looking for specific material which none of the libraries own, please contact us ( If it is possible to buy an electronic copy of a book we will try to do so, though we cannot do this for journal articles to which we don't subscribe. 

We cannot send printed books to Singapore and the British Library's Inter Library Loan system only operates within the UK, so there may be occasions where we cannot help you to find what you need. However, we may be able to advise you about alternative sources which will help.
