It would be good if USyd library could liaise with NLA and Trove as currently if I use Trove to search for books/documents, it can tell me that USyd have the book but it’s stopped pointing me to the location of the book in the library.
It used integrate seamlessly and it was very useful as I could tell often whether I was better off going to the State Library for a book, USyd or requesting the book/document as an interlibrary loan.
E.g. a search for Le Corbusier’s Towards a New Architecture
Trove search tells me Sydney library has it
But when I click ‘at University of Sydney library’ in trove it points to this website
and I get this blank result
Also, for the architecture subject guide and international students – consider linking to some of the visual dictionaries of architecture in our collection. Very useful for students where English is a second language.
Thank you for your feedback. We are aware of the issue and we have contacted Trove to update the link through our Library search Platform.
We are hoping to have this resolved shortly.
In regards to your second comment about the architecture subject guide- thank you, this is a great suggestion and we are currently updating the LibGuide to include visual dictionaries of architecture.
