The UQ Library website includes multiple systems and subscribed databases with a range of browser support requirements. In order to have the best experience, you should have an up to date web browser. Javascript must be enabled.

Supported browsers

The following tables outline what browsers we support and to what level we support them. Partial support means that we expect the site to be functional but it may not look as good as on a fully supported browser. 

Desktop browsers

Browser Version and support level
  • latest version (e.g. 47): full support
  • previous version (e.g. 46): partial support
Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 11: partial support

All the major desktop browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) now automatically update to the latest version.

If your browser is not listed above, you should still be able to use the site without problems, but we do not guarantee that all functionality on the site will work as intended. Browsers up to two years old usually work without problems. 

Mobile browsers

Browser Version and support level
Android latest native (Chrome): full support
iPhone (iOS) Safari
  • latest: full support
  • previous: partial support

Chrome and Safari now automatically update to the latest version.

As with desktop browsers, if your browser is not listed above, you should still be able to use the site without problems, but we do not guarantee that all functionality on the site will work as intended. 

JavaScript

Our applications, search systems and many subscribed databases require JavaScript to function. Make sure JavaScript is enabled in your browser.

Assistive technology and accessibility

Our site aims to comply with WCAG 2.0 to Level AA to ensure access for clients with disabilities. If your assistive technology can support WCAG 2.0 web content and you are experiencing difficulties, please report the problem so we can investigate. 

Refer to our support for clients with disabilities for more information and additional services.

External systems and databases

The Library provides access to many different services and databases from external providers. These external systems may have their own levels of browser support but will normally work with a wide range of modern, up-to-date browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer/Edge.

Reporting problems

If you are having any issues with accessing the Library website in a supported browser, please report it to webmaster@library.uq.edu.au.

Please include:

  • the device, operating system, browser, and browser version
  • the page or pages you were trying to access
  • whether you were on or off campus, and what type of internet connection you were using
  • if possible, a screen shot of the problem

We will investigate and respond.
