Do you need some additional resources to support your studies? Located on Level 8, the Navitas Library provides SIBT students an academic lending collection, computers, printing facilities, a quiet study space, group meeting rooms and specialist library staff for research assistance and direction.
For all enquiries and questions, you can contact library staff by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The library offers a course-specific collection, covering a wide-range of subjects including economics, business, and engineering.
The library provides access to copies of the prescribed textbooks, whether to borrow or use in the library. The Special Reserve collection will always hold a copy of every prescribed textbook for 2-hour use in the library. Copies that can be borrowed have a 7-day loan period. Please keep in mind that these are in high demand.
Referencing is an integral part of tertiary study. Students must acknowledge their sources of information and credit them where appropriate. Becoming familiar with and understanding the importance of referencing is a key to academic success.

Library staff can provide guidance and assistance with referencing; however, we cannot complete your referencing for you or do a complete check of your references and citations.
Printing, scanning, and copying facilities are available to current students using a current SIBT student card.
Student print accounts are autoloaded with credit every session for both printing and copying. If required credit can be topped at the library desk or at SIBT administration. Printing credit is non-refundable and non-transferable. Please note unused credit does not roll over.
Photocopiers in the library and in Lab 311 can be used to scan to email or directly to a USB drive. Scanning is a free service to current students.
