Remote access to online resources

The COVID-19 pandemic is requiring libraries to quickly adapt services to accommodate the needs of a largely remote community.

  • LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that dramatically expands your access to online resources by instantly connecting you to full text from popular research sites. This cloud based service has advised that they are responding to the increased demand for online access to resources, simplifying the path to content.
    How do I connect?
    Install LibKey Nomad via Choose UNSW Library as your institution.
  • Use the UNSW Library VPN to remotely access UNSW Library subscriptions. For more information, including step by step connection guides and support see UNSW VPN Service.
  • Find a range of open and online scholarly resources via the UNSW Library Open education resources guide

As the UNSW community moves to the online world there will be bandwidth issues, so please consider using low bandwidth resources.
