The CityU Academic Repository is now the NUS Repository

We have joined forces with National University to create the National University System Repository.

Look here for theses and dissertations, other scholarly works, and syllabi.

Search Tip!

The search box above will return results from all library resources (books, articles, videos, and so on). It will even return results beyond our collections if you select that option.

You can also search specific databases, which you might want to do because (1) there are some resources not included in our aggregate library search (e.g. business data), and (2) it allows you to target a specific body of literature (e.g. articles in psychology).

For more details on searching library collections, see our guide: How To Search the Library Collections.

Resource Highlight: Our World in Data

Our World in Data is a non-profit, open access, online publication that focuses on large global problems such as poverty, disease, hunger, climate change, war, existential risks, and inequality. Our World in Data uses interactive charts and maps to illustrate research findings, often taking a long-term view to show how global living conditions have changed over time.
