Inspirational collection receives recognition!
The University of Newcastle’s Huxley Library was visited recently by staff from the State Library of NSW Indigenous Services who praised the Library’s Indigenous Collection. This collection showcases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and is used by a range of students studying History, Sociology, Education and Aboriginal Studies at the University.
Huxley Library staff work closely with the Wollotuka Institute Library staff to continually build and maintain this significant resource.
The Library visit is highlighted in a State Library NSW Blogpost, read more here: http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/blogs/creating-welcoming-indigenous-library-spaces

Course Readings is a collection of high demand, essential scholarly materials identified by Course Coordinators to support teaching programs at University of Newcastle.
So how do you find them?
- You can search NEWCAT+, by title, to access electronic items (online articles, scanned articles or chapters from books and e-books.)
- Your Course Coordinator may also have created hyperlinks in Blackboard from your reading list.
- Physical items (books, DVDs, CDs, Kits and course readers) can be borrowed via self-check machines for a 2 hour loan period and must be returned to the same location.
