Electronic resources

­External databases are licensed information resources purchased by the library. They are sources of high-quality bibliographical and factual information. Most of them offer full-text articles, abstracts, references, and book reviews.

What is the best way to access them?

If you happen to be at the library...

  • The electronic databases are accessed ­from the library computers located at the information service.
  • The staff members of the information service will give you the access instructions.
  • You can also send us your questions and comments about electronic resources.

To facilitate orientation, we offer a list of the field classification of databases.
