Using the Library
Nan Tien Institute Library serves the research and study needs of students currently studying at NTI, both in person and online, as well as the research and teaching needs of staff.
The library is situated on the ground floor behind Reception, and welcomes all visitors to peruse our collection.
Library Staff Contact
Librarian: Jamila Choubassi
Phone: (02) 4258 0744
Library staff are available to assist with research enquiries, referencing and understanding assessments in person, by phone, via email or over Zoom.
To book an individual Zoom support session, please email the library with your support needs and 2 available times between 9am-5pm, Mon-Thurs. The Library will respond to confirm a time and provide a link for the session. Please note: staff may need to arrange session times based on availability.
Drop-in Zoom Support Sessions
The Library runs monthly drop-in sessions every second Wednesday of the month, 1:30pm – 2:30pm. Students may drop in at any time during this hour to ask questions related to library services, research and referencing help, online databases or other NTI systems, and more. These sessions do not require registration.
Access the drop-in sessions via the Online Student Support Guide (NTI login required).
Student seating, tables and study carrels are available in the library space. Power outlets are positioned all around the library, and students may see staff for access to the wi-fi network.
An additional quiet study area and meditation room is available above the Library on Level 1 of the Blue Pod, which students may use both during and outside of library hours. The quiet study space is not accessible from within the library, so items will need to be borrowed before students take them upstairs. This space is occasionally unavailable due to meditation groups.
