TAFE Students and Staff Ourimbah Library Guide: Finding Library Material

A guide to Ourimbah Library for Ourimbah TAFE Students and Staff

Search the Library catalogue

Search for the author and some words from the title in the Library Catalogue NewCat + if you are looking for a specific book, or type in keywords to find a selection of books on a topic.

Watch the short video below for information on finding a book in the Catalogue when you know the book title.

Finding books on the shelf

Printed material in the library is organised by call number. For help to identify the call numbers best for you, have a look at the Subject Help in your area of study.

Browsing the shelves may be useful in certain circumstances, but to ensure that you have your topic covered, you should use the Library catalogue NewCat+ to search for items.

What if the Library doesn't have what I want?

Ask at the Service Desk about getting the item from these other services for free.

TAFEcat is the TAFE NSW Library catalogue.

BONUS+ is a partnership we have with other University Libraries that Ourimbah based TAFE students have access to.

An Inter-Library Loans service to allow Ourimbah TAFE students to borrow books from other TAFE libraries is also available.
