Scientific Journals and Databases

LUBsearch is the university-wide portal to the libraries' e-journals, databases, medical dictionaries and encyclopedias, and other e-books. LUBsearch is freely searchable, but the electronic journals can only be read and downloaded within the university network, or if you log in with your Lucat-id. Choose "Hello, Guest.
