e-Library is Newcastle College Library's collection of e-books, electronic journals and specially selected online resources to help you with your assignments. This way you can still get access to information, even when we are closed over Christmas.
Links to the most popular resources can be found on the Research and Study Support page of this blog, but if you want to access the full collection, here's what you need to do...:
1. Firstly, you'll need to log on to Blackboard (NB NOT the new version's link if you are a FD student - use the login boxes below the blue strap that you would normally click on), then click on the "My Courses" tab at the top of the page (see "1" below)...:
2. Next, click on either "FE Library" (if you are a Level 1-3 student), or "HE Library" (if you are on a Level 4+ course), at "2" in the screenshot above.
This will take you to the Library pages on Blackboard. You'll need to select the fourth option on the screen, "e-resources"...:
3. After that, you'll have a choice of either e-books, e-journals, a drop-down menu to specific resources for particular Subjects, or an A-Z list of links to all of the products. Make your selection, then click on the relevant logos to access individual resources.
When you are asked for a Username and Password, just use the same ones that you use to access Blackboard. You MUST change your password from your date of birth to access e-library off-campus.
Full details of how to access e-Library can be downloaded here.
