Improved resource sharing service

Improving your Resource Sharing experience
– with just one click!

The Library is improving the way students, researchers and staff can request items from beyond our collections. Currently, if you would like an item that we don’t hold in our collections—such as a book or a digital copy of a journal article—you have to fill in a Resource Sharing request form.

From Monday 22 November 2021, when you use Library Search to find an item that isn’t in our collections but is available in a partner institution, you may be able to get a book or a digital copy of a book chapter or journal article—with just one click! This new service will automatically include the item details, without having to fill in a long form. You’ll also be able to better track your item (and download digital items you’ve requested) using My Account.

We will expand this service over the upcoming weeks, and fully launch the improved resource sharing service on Monday 31 January 2022. Until this date, you can continue to request items as you normally would using the Resource Sharing request form.

We welcome feedback on the resource sharing service and improvements, please take a few minutes to fill in the Resource Sharing Feedback Form. If you have any questions regarding resource sharing or this improved service, please contact Jeff Cruz, Associate Director Site Services at jeffery.cruz@sydney.edu.au or Katrina McAlpine, Associate Director Publishing and Data Services at katrina.mcalpine@sydney.edu.au.
