  • 3 months ($42.80 inclusive of GST)


  • Access-Only members have access to the Central Library and the other 6 Special Libraries.
  • Use of materials in the Closed Stacks is extended to Access-Only members, for reading within the library premises only.
  • Access-Only members are NOT entitled to borrow any material or access electronic resources of NUS Libraries.
  • Payment is not refundable and is subject to Goods and Services Tax (GST).
  • The Access-Only card is NOT TRANSFERABLE and must be presented when accessing NUS Libraries.
    The card must be returned to the Library when the membership expires.
  • There will be a charge of $10.7 for any replacement card.
  • The category of Library Membership is limited to a maximum of 3 months.
