How to request items between UON Libraries

All University of Newcastle staff and students can request material from our other UON campus libraries including: Newcastle City campus Library, Callaghan (Huxley and Auchmuty Libraries), and Central Coast (Ourimbah Library).

The exception is for items held at the UON Sydney Library.  Students studying at UON Sydney Library can request from any campus library.

For example, to request items that have been shifted to the Auchmuty Library as part of the move to NeW Space including DVDs and CDs, music scores, and records just click on the ‘Request It’ button on the item via the Library Catalogue, (NEWCAT+)

These should be available the next business day.
