The UvA Library gives access to several pre-selected resources such as subject specific databases (see sample below) and e-journals.

Search the databases (and Google Scholar) preferably using ‘Advanced search’. ‘Advanced search’ allows you to better translate your research question into a search string (a combination of search terms) suited to find the information you need with the resource you are using.

International databases such as Google Scholar, LLBA and MLA chiefly collect scholarly literature in English. It is therefore important that you expand your search to include (more) publications in Italian, available via the UvA Library.

Torrossa provides access to over 80 e-journals and more than 700 e-books, most of them from 1995 onwards.
