ARROW Discovery Service

ARROW is an exciting new research tool provided by the National Library of Australia to provide instant access to scholarly resources for students, academics and members of the public.

This service provides access to the research outputs of Australian universities: many are unpublished theses, preprints or post prints, as well as published journal articles, images, working papers and technical reports.

The majority of items discoverable through the Service are available online at home, and also contain statistics, including tables of the most popular authors and institutions.

It currently contains more than 137,000 records harvested from 23 university repositories and 12 other research collections, including the Australasian Digital Theses program, and several e-journals.

As an example of how it works, a search on “climate change” returns a relevance-ranked result set of 722 records from 21 different university repositories, plus the Australasian Digital Theses Program and an e-journal from UTS.
These results can then be refined to zero in on specific subjects such as climatology resources, or to those dealing with conservation and biodiversity.
