Home > Collections

VU University Library contains several collections. They are searchable through the catalogue and the search box (right column on this page). Searches may be conducted in two ways, directly in the source (catalogue, e-journals, etc.) or by subject.

A substantial part of the collections is online available. You can select online documents by selecting "e-Books", "Electronic media, general" or "e-Journals" in the catalogue ("advanced search"). In the search box (right) you can select "e-Journals" or "e-Resources" (databases). Links to e-books and e-resources per academic discipline can be found at Collections per academic discipline. The Library's digitized collections of images can be accessed through the image base.
