Access full-text with fewer clicks

Accessing the full-text of most journal articles and book chapters just got faster! You told us you want fewer clicks to access Library resources and we’re happy to deliver.

In most cases, we will now link you directly to full-text with one click, whether it’s straight from a UQ Library Search result or external databases like Google Scholar or PubMed. 

UQ Library Search

Click the Available online  link in a search result. The full-text of the article or book chapter will open in a new browser tab.
