Support for postgraduate study

New to postgraduate study at UNE? Contact one of our subject specialist librarians to find out how to tap into the range of Library services. Students on campus can call 02 6773 2458 (extn 2458). Online students can also call 1800 059 735.

Have a look at Researcher support pages and eSKILLS Plus. These provide information to help you build your research profile and grow your research skills.


Find out how to borrow items from the Library collection, and your borrowing terms. In addition, discover how to renew online and recall books already out on loan.

Online students

Postgraduates studying online can borrow from home. This service is free, but you are responsible for the return of books to the Library.

Loans of books and other items from the Library collection are made through Library Search. For the best results, sign in before running a query.

Library Search is also the place where you can request copies of book chapters and journal articles. If you wish to request copies of case law reports, use our online forms for the purpose.

If you live or work near another Australian university, you can join their library,


Library staff provide face-to-face, online and telephone-based EndNote support, as well as regular EndNote classes, which can be booked using our online booking system.

Interlibrary Loans

The Library funds a number of interlibrary loans for postgraduates, so you can access journal articles, book chapters and books held in other libraries.
