More resources

Lapland university and Lapland UAS offer over 15,000 online journals, about 150,000 e-books and a wide selection of databases to their users. 

Most of the databases are produced by commercial businesses and accordingly the use of these database is limited to the university that has bought the right to use then through licences and similar contracts. The databases that the Lapland University and Lapland UAS have obtained access to can be accessed by students and staff by logging in to them using their university credentials (=HakaLogin) even when not on the university network. Electronic resources are separate for Lapland University and Lapland UAS.

Databases are also created by libraries, scientific societies and other academic organizations. These are typically freely available online for anyone to use.

More extensive guidance in using these is offered at the Lapland University in the course Scientific Information Retrieval (YMEN1804, 2 cr).
