Library on Demand

Welcome to a very special service for Yale-NUS students and faculty.  Library On-Demand gives you access to millions of useful resources that would not be available otherwise.  Here’s how it works:

  1. You must check the NUS/Yale-NUS Library catalog carefully. The vast majority of books and journal articles will be found there.
  2. If you do not find your item in the library catalog, you may select an On-Demand service.
  3. Library On-Demand includes large databases of eBooks and films. Those items are not owned by the library until you make your
    selection. When you choose an On-Demand item, the library is billed for the purchase and – together – we have acquired a new item.
