Subject guide: Portuguese

Welcome to the library’s subject guide for Portuguese studies.

Resources for finding books and articles

You can search for the library's ebooks, printed books and journal articles in the search box on the library's start page. You can also search for books and articles in the following resources:

  • DART-Europe
    Find full-text dissertations from a number of universities in Europe.
  • Google Scholar 
    NB The search service contains not only scholarly literature but also many non-scholarly sources and 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).
  • Linguistics Collection
    Database collection for literature on linguistics and language-related disciplines. The collection searches simultaneously in the databases Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts and Linguistics Database.
