Using the Library browser add-on

Frustrated with trying to get full-text content? If you're jumping between your writing, Google, publisher's sites and the Library, this browser add-on provides a one-click solution.

The Library browser add-on allows you to:

  • Highlight text in any web page and right-click to access Library content, journal titles or Google Scholar
  • Look for the UOW shield icon next to a title on sites like Amazon and Google Books, and with one click,  see if you can get it from the Library
  • Reload a publisher page to immediately recognise your UOW status to immediately access Library subscribed content
  • Right-click on any Google Scholar results page and select Reload page via Off Campus Access to show links to Library content


   Firefox (Note: Mac users need to download the .xpi file and drag it into their plugins folder in Firefox)
