Find Journal Articles
The UBL provides access to an endless collection printed and online journal articles
You can search for articles in the Catalogue via the All Content tab. This tab contains links to the full text articles from a number of databases that the library provides access to. Please take not that not all articles to which the library gives access can be found via All Content! For a complete overview always search in different sources.
Are you looking for a specific article and don't get results in All Content? Then go to Leiden Collections tab and look for the related journal title. Click Online Access for access. Sometimes you get a screen after which you can make a choice for access through different suppliers. Then always look carefully at the publication year of the article before making your choice.
If you want to search for journal articles within a certain subject, use a bibliographic database. An overview of databases related to your field can be found in the Subject Guides.
A number of databases contain the full-text of journal articles. Press the GetIt button next to or near the abstract of an article for access. If you can't find the GetIt-button or a database doesn't contain full-text, then look in the Catalogue whether or not the UBL owns the journal in a printed version (search for the title of the journal) or check WorldCat if the journal is available at another university library.
