E-Journals/ Print Journals

E-Journals/ Print Journals

You can use both Discovery and the Catalogue to find journals and e-journals owned by Rostock University Library.

Below we explain how to use Discovery to find e-journals and how to navigate to the publisher's website, where you can read the journal.

We also show you how to use Discovery to search for printed journals and how to find their location in the library.

If you have any questions on searching, please contact a member of staff at the Information Desk.

Due to licensing regulations, some restrictions to accessing electronic content apply.

Please take note of our terms of use for electronic resources.

In case the Library does not have the journal you are looking for, you can order articles from the journal via interlibrary loan.
