SFX - faster to the electronic full text

SFX is your fast way from references out of numerous databases to the corresponding electronic full texts (if available and licensed to the University Library) and further research services.

[Translate to English:] Sie finden den SFX-Button bereits in verschiedenen Datenbanken. Mit dem Linkresolver SFX erhalten Sie schon während Ihrer Recherche Zugang zu vorhandenen elektronischen Volltexten.

Research - Find - Use

  1. Start your research.
  2. Find a relevant reference.
  3. Use the SFX-button.

If an electronic full text is available, you will be directly forwarded (example A). If no electronic full-text is available, you will be offered searching alternatives, for example in our catalogue (example B).

By clicking the GO button in the SFX menu for the catalogue search “Available in the HSB?" a search is triggered in the catalogue of the University Library Emden/Leer. The search query produces a match for a printed book in the collection of the library, which can be borrowed on site.
