Access to e-sources
The e-sources of the University Library can be searched together with the other collections in Limo.
Databases, e-books and e-journals
All e-sources to which the University Libary subscribes or has a license to, and a selection of freely available e-sources (e.g. through Open Access).
Books and articles available in Lirias
Lirias is the digital repository of scientific publications by KU Leuven staff. As such it is also used for the university's Open Access policy.
Electronic publications indexed in Primo Central
Primo Central is an index of hundreds of millions articles and e-books (chapters), based on data offered by publishers and content providers or uploaded from open access-repositories. The index already covers various e-journal collections and databases to which the University Library subscribes or has a license, or that are freely available. Primo Central still is a work in progress, though: the amount of content still increases monthly.
Therefore consult thecurrent overview of indexed sources + selection of important sources that are not yet searchable in Primo Central (and Limo).
