Search services

  • E-kutub
    Ebooks in Arabic.
    A national catalogue providing information on titles held by Swedish university and research libraries.
  • Google Scholar 
    NB The search service contains not only scholarly literature but also many non-scholarly sources and predatory journals (i.e. dishonest journals). Consequently, you should check that sources are scholarly and that articles are not from blacklisted journals in Cabells – Predatory Reports. To get access to full-text articles in the library’s journal subcriptions, you must activate a library link (See Activate library links in Google Scholar).
