A specific document (a book, article, etc.)

I know exactly what I’m looking for

A person reading a book while leaning against a bookshelf in the Central Library.

That’s the motto for a targeted literature search. If you have a reading list and you’re wondering where to find the books, all you need is the type of literature and some bibliographic details like the titles of the books or journals and their authors or editors.

And if you’re not sure about what different types of scientific literature there are, don’t worry, we’ll explain it on the next pages, and we’ll also show you how to find them quickly.

All clear? The quiz will confirm it!

Take the quiz on the chapters How to find… and Accessing literature. It is anonymous, can be retaken at any time, and is solely for your self-assessment.
