You come a long way by using the JU Library search tool PRIMO, which contains all of the resources the JU Library provides access to. However, once you need to make a more specific search for scholarly publications, one of the databases linked below is usually a more appropriate tool.
Search in Primo
With Primo you can search for books, articles and other publications that the library has access to including printed and electronic material.
Databases within the field of Materials and Manufacturing
Below, you will find links to databases where you can search for different scientific publications. Some of them can be accessed in full text directly in the databases. If not, you can still access them if the library has a subscription to the journal, using the JU link:
If the article is neither part of the library subscriptions nor freely accessible via Google Scholar, it can be ordered as an interlibrary loan.
If you need help searching, you are welcome to contact us at the library and we'd be happy to help you.
