The Sopchyshyn Family Library at Newman College is open to the public. NTC External borrower cards cost $15.00 per year. Other NEOS libraries also accept our External borrower's card. Newman Library does not accept the TAL card.
is a library consortium of academic, health and government libraries that share resources through an online catalogue and borrower database. A NEOS library card is good at any member library. In addition, borrowers may request items through the catalogue and have them sent to their library of choice. Borrowed items may be returned to any NEOS library. The NEOS catalogue allows borrowers to see the status of their accounts, renew items and check or cancel hold requests.
