Library App – your digital library card

Your device becomes your digital library card with the University of Sydney Library app – when borrowing books scan the digital card within the app at the self service checkout.

Get persistent authentication – you can log in once and then have access to your borrowing, loans and fines information. It also enables you to request items from the catalogue and access our databases without the need to re-authenticate again.

Fast search of our catalogue by scanning any book’s ISBN by using the camera on the phone.
Easy access to our 360 virtual tours, opening hours, study space booking, news & events, social media channels and Chat Now/ Ask Us Now services.
And more…

The app is a free download on the Apple and Google app stores.
