Through the university library, there is access to a large number of databases where you can find, among other things, books, journals, articles, sheet music and audio files, often in full text. Some databases contain references to where you can find the full text.

At Luleå University of Technology you get automatic access to the contents of the databases , but if you are located elsewhere you must log in with your LTU user account. You have an LTU user if you are a student or employee at Luleå University of Technology. If you do not have an LTU user, you have a more limited access.

The Library Search Tool

When you search in the Library Search Tool, you search in most databases and journals that are available through LTU. Remember to log in with your LTU user to get full access.
Here you can also find Open Access resources.
This symbol in the hit list indicates that the publication is openly available.  

All databases

Here you will find a list of all databases available via LTU.
The list is in alphabetical order. If you want to see the databases by subject, select subject in the "Select subject area" menu.
Some of the databases are marked with a green key, these are free databases that everyone can always access.

Information on use

Popular databases

Some Swedish resources

Open access databases

A selection of databases with openly available scientific research results in the form of e-books, articles and more that are available to read in full text for all users.

Open digital archives

In open digital archives, one can obtain full texts of scientific articles even if the article is not published with Open Access. Some publishers allow the researcher to archive the article in that way, so-called parallel publication. When you find a full-text article in an open archive, you need to pay attention to which version is available, it is not always the peer-reviewed version that is published in the archive.

Below you can see a selection of open digital archives for scientific publications.
