Welcome to the University of Newcastle Library

This guide is designed to help you get started with your library research.

Click on any of the tabs above to find information about how to locate books, journal articles, English language learning resources, and more.

Getting started

Getting started

Have a look at our guide to help you get started in the Library.

Use your student card to borrow items from the Library. Your student card is also connected to your PrintCopy account for printing and copying. Add credit to your card using the autoloader on Level 2 of the library, or online using myPrintCopy.
For more information (including costs) see:
Printing and copying.

To start using the Library you need to set up a Library PIN to access online books, journals and Course Reserves. Your Library PIN also enables you to request and renew items.

Your Library PIN needs to be either 4, 5 or 6 numbers (numbers only, no letters or special characters).

  • Go to MyLibrary
  • Enter your student number without the 'c' (eg. 3012650) and click LOGIN.
  • Enter your student number again in the box provided.

  • Enter your PIN twice in the boxes as shown above.
  • Click LOGIN.

You will now see your Library record with your name.

If you have any problems creating your PIN, please phone the Library on 491 38800, or complete an online help form. You should receive a response within 24 hours.



Use MyLibrary to view your library record. MyLibrary is your personal library space where you can see what items you have borrowed, when they are due back, renew (re-borrow) items, and keep a record of your borrowing history.

Click Reading History and then Opt In to keep your borrowing history on record (a handy way to remember the titles you have borrowed previously).
