IIIEE Library and information resources guide

A LibGuide on Library and Information resources for the students and research staff of the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund university.

Can't find what you are looking for in any of the LU libraries?

If you can't find a printed book or a journal when using the LU libraries' resources, you can request an interlibrary loan, i.e. a loan from another library in Sweden or elsewhere. It's possible to order both books and photocopies of journal articles. Only IIIEE staff and students can order interlibrary loans at the IIIEE library. You need a valid LU library card, please visit the library if you need to get a card.

First, see if you can find the material you are looking for in the national catalogue Libris: http://libris.kb.se/ . If you find what you are looking for in Libris, but see that it is not available at Lund university, then please click the link provided below the catalogue post to request an interlibrary loan. The system will ask you to log in or create an interlibrary loans account (form in Swedish) the first time you use it.
Please note that ebooks can never be borrowed through interlibrary loan.

For materials that you cannot find in Libris, please register with the local LU interlibrary loans system BasILL: http://basill.lub.lu.se/. Log in with your LUCAT/StiL. The first time you log in you will have to complete your profile. Please always provide as much information as possible.

Please contact the library if you have any questions!

Finding articles not held at LU

If you find a good article, which you are not able to get in full text through LUBsearch you may be able to get it by going to the author's own web page, his/her university or organization to see if it is available there.

In Google you can paste the title of the article within quotation marks and in many cases find the link to the full text article.

Lots of universities now have their own archives where you can access full text articles and other publications written by researchers working there.
OpenDOAR lets you search the contents of the repositories listed in OpenDOAR for freely available academic research information.

OAIster is the name of a searchable open access web resource, with mainly academic content - for example publications from Lund University can be found here. It holds more than 8 million records form over 600 institutions.

It may also be useful to use search engines which specialize in academic/scientific information, as for example
Google Scholar
