Student accessing resources using an iPad

Temporary additional online resources

In addition to the vast range of online resources that we already provide access to via NUsearch, some publishers offered extended or additional access to their content.

Since March, we updated this blog post as more online resources became available.  Now that we are in November, we have removed the majority of entries as access has ceased. This includes all the publishers offering additional temporary etextbook access. Please email for help with specific essential resources.

For easier access to online resources whilst working off campus, we recommend downloading the Library Access browser extension.

Visit the Libraries Support Hub for answers to frequently asked questions from staff and students, including accessing library resources online.
