Tips for books

  • Use quotation marks around the title to make your search more specific. Example: "Clinical reasoning".
  • The Library catalogue record for the book will include details of editions that are available - look for the latest.
  • For books which are available electronically there will be a link to the ebook provider.
  • Need to find the book in the Library?

Found a print book we don't have?

  • If Newcastle doesn't have the print book you want, request it from another library using our BONUS+ and/or Get It Services.
  • For more details go to our Borrowing from other libraries webpage.
  • Please note that this does not apply to electronic books.
