New features in the Library catalogue

18th February, 2022

The Library’s catalogue has received several new features (as pilots) to assist you in finding and accessing resources.  

One-click access to thousands of scholarly journals 

Libkey adds one-click access to full text articles from the Library catalogue, the Library’s databases, and Google Scholar. LibKey works automatically – sign-in to the UTS Library website before you start searching and direct-access links will be added automatically. 

Add the extension to your browser and enjoy one-click access to sources across the internet such as on Wikipedia. Select University of Technology Sydney in the setup and you’re good to go (click to enlarge images).

Once in BrowZine, you can create a personal bookshelf of journals, bookmark articles to read later and set alerts so you’ll never miss a new article release from your favourite journal.  

Expand your search to other libraries 

If you’re a UTS staff or a HDR, postgraduate or honours student and you can’t find what you’re looking for in the Library catalogue you can expand your search to include results from partnering libraries and request to loan a resource. 

Once signed in, select expand your search at the top of the search results.
