4. Where do I find literature on my topic?

In general you will be able to find relevant literature in the library's Discovery catalogue and in bibliographical databases offered by the library. With the increased availability of e-resources we offer you the eResources Title List. These are available online from your computer at work or from your home. If the databases are licensed for CWI use only, they will still be available on your computer at home. You need to setup a VPN client.
