Other borrowers

Please be advised that some Library services and access to resources have been modified in response to the current COVID-19 situation. Visit the Library's updates and support page for all current information.

Library buildings are open to university students, staff and our Community Borrowers membership holders. These members no longer require swipe card access. Social distancing measures are in place to help keep everyone safe. You will notice signage around the Library spaces that indicate the number of people that each space can accommodate and the seating capacity in our Group Study rooms has also been reduced so please check the room information before Booking a Study Space. At this time, no general community members or non-university students can access libraries. Contact us through our Library chat service, or via email or text.

The University of Newcastle Library offers annual membership to people who are not current staff or students.

Library cards will be issued upon presentation of a completed Library Membership Application form available from any Library Service Zone.

Please note: Library membership does not allow remote access to electronic resources. Licensing requirements restrict access to current staff and students.
Borrowing privileges and future Library membership may be withheld from members of the library who accrue fines. This includes any fines accrued on Library accounts previously held by the borrower.
