SEARCH ENGINES ACADEMIC LITERATURE

LOOKING FOR ACADEMIC LITERATURE

We strongly recommend that you  download and install the Lean Library browser extension on your computer. This enables you to track the University Library’s (full text) digital content (UL) and open access, while looking for literature.

The best starting point for searching for literature is Libsearch. This database contains information about all (e)books,  e-journals, e-articles and all other University Library materials. If a document is digitally available, you can click to obtain  access to the full text. Libsearch also offers access to the collections of many libraries worldwide.

If a search in Libsearch doesn’t provide sufficient results, you can use one of the listed databases on this page. These databases offer more advanced  search options than Libsearch. If results  are still  insufficient, we  recommended  using multiple l sources.
