Welcome to the Library Guide for students and staff from Newcastle University International Singapore.
The Guide will help you to explore the electronic resources available to you via Newcastle University Library, plus offer tips and advice on how to write assignments and dissertations.
Click on the boxes to the right for detailed information for your subject strand. To find out who we are and how we can support you in your studies click on Liaison Team above.
To find out about general Library services go to the main Library website.
Get answers to your questions through our searchable knowledge base. If you prefer, you can tweet, email or text your query, just click on the logo to find out how. For detailed subject enquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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 Library Search (just put in the journal/book/conference title) and follow the links from there.
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 login with your Newcastle University username and password to get access.
If the book is only available as a printed book, then check first to see if it is also available at Ngee Ann or Nanyang libraries.
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 owns, 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 which are not included in our subscriptions.
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 provide access to what you request. However, we will suggest alternatives where we can.
All permanent residents of Singapore can become members of the National Library of Singapore for no charge on production of their NRIC.Other people may join on payment of an annual foreign membership fee.
The library subscribes to a range of electronic journals and databases, both local and international, as well a several collections of standards and business information.
You may also apply to be an external member of the National University of Singapore library but please note there is a charge for this.
All Newcastle undergraduate students based at Ngee Ann may use the Lien Ying Chow Library.
All Newcastle undergraduate students based at Nanyang may use the Nanyang Poly Library.
