Libraries are an integral part of the learning environment. Library staff are committed to assisting learners in a friendly environment to develop the necessary research skills to access relevant course related resources, and new technologies, to achieve effective student outcomes. As an OTEN student you will be able to access library services in the TAFE NSW network.
The TAFE NSW online library catalogue (TAFEcat) is accessible via the internet. It provides information about:
- Where resources are held across the TAFE NSW library network
- Your library record and loan details
- When books are due to be returned
- When a reserved item is ready to be collected.
TAFEcat also gives you direct access to a selection of eResources, including eBooks and eJournals. Inter-library loans are also available.

- Arts and Media
- Business Services
- Fashion and Beauty
