Designed in three distinct sections: Services Resources Information
Our library portal is divided into 3 columns: Centre column ( point accordingly ) is for searching Resources in library catalogue, databases, e-journals and so on. Left column pertains to Services like member login and for seeking help. Right column stores important Information like library opening hours, news and events. ( Next click ) Let’s now have a closer look at the library catalogue . LINC+ (point accordingly) is our enhanced library catalogue recently launched. It has many additional features not available in LINC, the old library catalogue. InfoGate is a platform for finding articles in databases and e-journals. Currently it is not activated and will be made available later. You can use advanced search functionality if you wish to do so and may find out latest titles recently added to our library collection.
LINC+ is our new simple & easy-to-use discovery tool. You can use it to look for resources provided by the library, such as books, journals, multimedia resources, etc. With this new interface, you can find more visual information about the resources through the book covers, table of contents & reviews, etc., which can help you decide better which resources are relevant to you. You may also access the e-journals, ebooks & digital videos directly from here, if available.
If you need to locate items by their call number, please use LINC. Note: If students ask why they cannot do a call number search in LINC+, simply say that this feature is currently not available in LINC+ as our enhancement of the library catalogue is done in stages.
Besides those obtained from the catalogue, you may find other useful resources from the portal. They include RBR and E-reserves, e-resources, past exam papers and subject guides.
The RBR Collection holds reserved or recommended readings for various course modules. You may borrow one item at a time for 2 hours or overnight. Overnight loan starts 2 hour before the library closes and you have to return within an hour after the library is open the next working day. You have to return the loaned item at the RBR Book drop. Overdue fine at $1.00 per hour is charged for late return.

Materials kept in RBR are essential course readings specially selected by the teaching staff for the duration of the course. They are in high demand and as such hefty fines are imposed for late returns. RBR titles can be accessed from our library homepage by course no or the name of your lecturer. Note the call number of the RBR item required and self-retrieve it from RBR Collection at Loans Desk 1 for check-out. Make sure that it is returned through the RBR book drop at Loan Desk 1.
Click on center of picture to activate VIDEO. Enter Loans Desk 1 to borrow from the self-service RBR Collection. Leave your belongings at the designated shelf. Go to the shelf where the RBR book is located. You will require the call number from LINC to locate the book. Bring the book to the borrowing station and hand the book and your student card to the staff. The book will be issued to you for 2 hours or overnight. Collect your book and card and leave the area. Return RBR books at the RBR bookdrop only. Check that the loan is cancelled on the monitor.
Library E-Reserves are materials that have been digitised for online access. They are specially selected materials by the teaching staff that are available online. They are placed on IVLE, student learning portal. You can find them in IVLE by the course module code.

We have a wide range of e-resources as shown on the screen covering a wide range of disciplines or subjects. For convenience, major E-Resources such as the Web of Science (WOS) which is useful for general disciplines like arts and science, are displayed on the Library home-page under E-Resources. The E-Resource Homepage facilitates searching or browsing of online materials under various types of E-Resources eg databases, e-journals, e-books, etc. You have to login using your Nusnet Id and password.

Before any E-Resource can be accessed, staff and students have to accept the AUP by clicking on the I Accept button. Please make sure that you read the AUP carefully as you are deemed to have been aware and committed to complying with the conditions set out in the AUP before making use of the E-Resource .
As research tools, most indexing databases like WOS have common features. After you execute a search, say on a topic like global technology, the system retrieves a list of hundreds of relevant articles from various journals. Some of the databases like WOS may provide link to full text articles published in e-journals subscribed by the library. So you can save a lot of your time by using these databases to find references and by accessing full text articles from our subscribed e-journals.
