How to find publications in Global Search

What is Global Search?
In the bibliographic database Global Search you search in a collection of millions of journal articles, books, proceedings and reports.
Global Search covers most of WUR Library’s resources, including the Library Catalogue and Staff Publications. Not all publications are in print available or directly full text available at WUR Library.

Other bibliographic databases
Not all scientific publications are covered in Global Search. For more systematic searches on a subject use the option Browse collections.

How to search
You can search via the (simple) search box. For a structured search switch to ‘Advanced Search’. You can filter the search results by author, local collections, resource type, publication year etc.

The search results: Get it!
When a publication is online available the title is linked to the full text. If the publication is not full text available you have to go to ‘Get it!’ and find out if the publication is in print available at the library.
The button ‘Details’ provides more information about the publication (a summary, descriptors).
Not everything you find via Global Search is present or directly online available at WUR Library. But if you really need it, you can order the book or article.
