Welcome to the University of Newcastle Library

This guide will help you get started with your library research.

Use the menu on the left to locate English language learning resources, books, journal articles, and more.

Getting started

Getting started

Use your student card to borrow from the Library.

Your student card is also your PrintCopy account for printing and copying.

Add credit to your card using an autoloader, or online. See Paying for printing.

You need a Library PIN to borrow resources. A Library PIN also provides access to online books, journals and course readings, and enables you to request and renew items.

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

  • Go to MyLibrary
  • Enter your student number without the 'c' (eg. 3012650).
  • Click LOGIN.
  • Enter your student number again in the box provided.
  • Enter your PIN twice in the boxes as shown below.

  • Click LOGIN.

Phone the Library (492 16717), or complete an online help form if you have any problems creating your PIN.



Use MyLibrary to view your library record.

MyLibrary is your personal library space where you can see what you have borrowed, when items are due back, renew (re-borrow), 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).
