Open throughout the College day and during most College holidays, CNC Library is Located in the Main Building between St. Bede’s and St. Wilfrid’s.  The Library offers a welcoming and student-friendly environment with a wide variety of print, digital and audio-visual resources to assist you with your studies.  In addition to our wide range of fiction books, study materials and feature films, there are also digital cameras, camcorders, portable photo studios and iPads available for loan.  Study space is readily available for students to work individually or in groups.

The CNC Library Moodle page offers a wide range of online resources that can be accessed 24/7 including eBooks, eJournals and newspapers, and useful website links. Students can also access the Library catalogue via the Moodle page where you can search for, reserve and renew Library resources.  In addition to this, you will find a range of useful ‘how-to’ guides on the Library Moodle page, including help with referencing, revision techniques and research skills.

iPads are free to borrow from the Library, which also has a suite of 30 computers (including MACs) where you can complete assignments, carry out research and check emails.  Printing, photocopying, and scanning facilities are available and there is also a shop where students can purchase various items of stationery and some course textbooks.

You will receive a full Library induction at the start of your first year and further Library workshops throughout your time at Newman, where appropriate for your course.  A member of the Library team is always on-hand and happy to help with any enquiries you may have.
