The New Library Website Is Here!

The New Library Website Is Here! 

We have redesigned our website to align with the look of the NMIT web presence. The library website has a fresh and modern interface with clear features for better navigation.

It provides bright obvious access options for all the searches you will need to locate resources and to find information about library services.

Some of the key changes are:

·      Fresh familiar interface similar to the NMIT website

·      Bright clear layout for ease of searching

·      Navigation includes five simple headings - Borrow, Find, Help, Services and About

·      Quicklinks to frequently performed tasks such as renew your loans, opening hours, databases &              eJournals A-Z, chat to a librarian, and reference your work.

·      Funky dynamic word cloud linking to the most tagged LibGuides

·      Adaptability for mobile devices

What we have not changed is the FindIt@ search box. It is still the best place to start any of your research. Similar to Google search, FindIt@ is a single search interface where you can find everything NMIT library holds on a topic.

There is so much at your fingertips – please explore and enjoy. Visit

Copying and printing made easier with new add value machines

Adding value to your student card for copying and printing is easier with new add value machines at all NMIT libraries. The new machine accepts coins and notes and uses a colour touchscreen. Just touch the screen to begin.
Please note that the machines do not give change. Ask the library staff if you need change for large denomination notes.
To add value with EFTPOS, please ask the library staff.
