eResources (books, journals and databases)

NTU Library provides access to over 777,000 eBooks and over 200,000 eJournals. The majority of eBooks and eJournals can be accessed from on and off campus and can be used to support your online learning.

The starting point for locating resources is Library OneSearch, your gateway to NTU Library’s eBooks, databases, eJournals, NTU research and much more.

You will find guidance available in the eBooks section of NOW Help to using different eBook platforms and troubleshooting any difficulties in accessing eBooks from off campus.

From Library OneSearch you can also manage your library account, save your searches and set up alerts.  Further guidance is available via NOW Help.  Have a look at the Library OneSearch: a guide for students.

Check for resource lists on your module learning room.

Even more eBooks, journals and video content

As we're now all working off campus, a number of publishers and online information providers have temporarily opened up access to their services for the next few weeks. This means that you've got access to some extra eBooks, journals and video content.

To help you find and use them more easily, we've added them to the Find Database page in Library OneSearch.

There are currently 14 new services, including:

We anticipate that this list will change in the coming days and weeks, and additional services will be added – we’ll keep you up to date via social media. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
