Third Iron enables the vital role libraries play in the research process with innovative technologies that meet the expectations of today’s user.

When the point of discovery is within the library, in services like databases and discovery layers, our services simplify and expedite how users get to full text.

When research starts outside the library, at sites like Google and ResearchGate, Third Iron technology identifies and seamlessly connects users to library full text.

Together, Third Iron services deliver libraries a modern digital access strategy that saves researchers countless hours of time, reduces the load on the help desk and unnecessary ILL requests, and meets the expectations of students, faculty and researchers.
