Discovery service

Our library uses the ExLibris ALMA library management system with Primo VE as its online search engine. This search service not only allows you to browse our library's entire holdings, but also to search for subscribed databases and online journals, as well as Open Access content.

Our holdings include 55 119 books, 2 782 electronic books for remote access, 41 658 journal units, 2 208 research reports, 16 electronic documents (CD/DVD), and 3 books of museum value. The books and journals are also borrowed through the Alma library system. Registered readers can also subscribe to borrowable items found in the Primo VE search engine.

You can access the library's online search engine by entering your search term in the search box at the top left of our website or by clicking on the link below:
