Please be advised that some Library services and access to resources have been modified in response to the current COVID-19 situation. Library buildings are open to university students, staff and our current Community Borrowers membership holders. At this time, no general community members or non-university students can access our libraries. As a result, the Open Door Program and library tours have been temporarily suspended.
The University of Newcastle Libraries offer local secondary school students the opportunity to get a head start on tertiary studies by joining the University Library. School students can borrow from the University collections and use online resources while on campus. The UON Library gives students access to over one million books.
So whether you're working on school assignments, studying for the HSC, or just looking for a good book to read, save yourself some research time and head to one of the University of Newcastle libraries.
The Auchmuty Library is located on the Western side of the campus near the Shortland Union Building. The Library service zone, Learning Lounge and the Law collection are located on the main level (level 3). The Information Common (AIC), Course Readings collection, Cafe and Cultural Collections are located on level 2.
The Ourimbah Library at the Central Coast campus (Ourimbah) provides services to both Ourimbah TAFE NSW and University of Newcastle staff and students.
Functioning as a multi-sector library allows our users access to a variety of resources provided by both the University and TAFE NSW.
