Library Services


  is a library consortium of academic, health and government libraries that share resources through an online catalogue and borrower database. A NEOS library card is good at any member library. In addition, borrowers may request items through the catalogue and have them sent to their library of choice. Borrowed items may be returned to any NEOS library. The NEOS catalogue allows borrowers to see the status of their accounts, renew items and check or cancel hold requests.

Link to the NEOS catalogue here

Please note that Newman Library does not have an after-hours bookdrop. For hours and locations of all NEOS libraries click here

Distance Education students may also access the catalogue but may only borrow items from Newman Library. Please contact the library to establish a borrower account.
