Newcastle College Library's Online Catalogue

Our Online Catalogue means you can easily search for, and reserve, resources from Newcastle College Library via any PC, Smart Phone or internet-enabled device, 24/7.

All you need to do is go to, or click on the Library Catalogue logo at the foot of this blog.

Once you've entered the site, use the Search Box just like you would use Google...:

Type in an Author, Title or Subject keyword then click on the magnifying glass icon. If you want to restrict your search to just e-books, DVDs or journals, for instance, click on "Advanced" and then select the appropriate options from the drop-down menus.

The Results Page shows you what we have in stock....:

Click on the blue title hyperlinks for more information, including the "Shelfmark" number, indicating where you can find the item on our shelves; plus whether it's currently on loan, and if so, when it's due to be returned.

(NB the results are sorted by "Shelfmark" order, not by relevance; so its worth scrolling through the results to find the most prevalent Class number. This will reveal the most useful resources for you).

To place a Reservation for an item currently on loan, click on "Reserve" then type in your Newcastle College ID number (without the 's'). We will then txt you as soon as the item becomes available (so please let us know if you change your mobile phone number).

A guide with full details of our Online Catalogue's functions and features can be downloaded here.
