Searching for literature

Do you find it difficult to find relevant literature for your research? To get the best results you have to answer the following questions:

  • What am I looking for?
  • Where should I be looking?
  • How do I search?
  • How do I select and assess my search results?

Information specialists and subject specialists of the University Library can help you with these questions. Mail your contact person for a personal appointment.

More information about searching for literature can be found in the LibGuide Zoekstrategie: http://libguides.library.uu.nl/zoekstrategie (in Dutch only) or on the website of the University Library, searching for literature,
