Searching for Literature

UAntwerp catalog

In the catalog you will find books, magazines, newspapers, dissertations, ... of the university library. Paper documents as well as online resources are included in the catalog.

Use the catalog also to request books from the stacks or to request for an article or book from another library. You can also check in the catalog whether a book is available or on loan.

Databases and articles

We purchase databases for research and education in various disciplines. In bibliographic databases you search for references of journal articles or book chapters. Other databases contain company data, legal texts or digitized historical sources. Online dictionaries are also listed in this overview of databases.

Most databases are only accessible to students and employees of UAntwerp.

Discovery service

This search engine searches through both the catalog and databases. So you can find both a book in the library and an online journal article.
