Most electronic databases/catalogues allow for a symbol to be used at the end of a word to retrieve variant endings of that word. This is known as truncation. In the University Library catalogue the question mark ? is the symbol for truncation. For example, when searching for 'verkeerswetenschap', you'll get 26 hits. However, when searching for verkeerswetenschap?, you'll get 566 results.

Note that this catalog is limited to materials available in the University Library.

Most books can be borrowed for three weeks. If a book has been borrowed by someone else, it is possible to place a reservation. Some books are for reference use only in the library and can not be borrowed. The Tinbergen room contains the reference collection for Economics and Business Administration - required literature, dictionaries, encyclopedias and handbooks - which is organized by the basic classification code.

Issues of the current year of a journal are available in the periodicals reading room in the University Library. The shelf code EB 11 has all transport journals and shelf code EB 21, the ones for logistics. Older volumes of print journals are stored in closed stacks. Request the volumes you want at the desk or via the virtual desk by quoting the journals p-number, e.g. P 10.908. An increasing amount of journals are electronically available. Select the discipline logistics, and an overview of e-journals on transportation will appear.

Dutch Central Catalogue (NCC)

If a journal is not available in the University Library Catalogue check the Dutch Central Catalogue (NCC) for holdings at other Dutch libraries.

Tracing journal articles

Use sEURch for tracing journal articles in the EUR library's e-journal collections. Another good starting point is Online Contents (OLC). This database contains approximately 15,000 journals and their articles from 1992 until now. Search this database by title words or abstract words. When you find an article of interest, verify its availability at our University Library first. If it is not available, request a copy via the InterLibrary Loan (ILL) system. For more information and costs for this service, click here.

Graduation papers

A special database within the UL catalogue the graduation paper database contains the titles of theses from the faculties of Economics, Social Sciences, History and Art and Health Policy and Management. Most of the theses are in Dutch. Of course, other academic institutions publish theses as well. Many of these are traceable via the National Academic Research and Collaborations Information System (NARCIS). NARCIS provides access to scientific information, including (open access) publications from the repositories of all the Dutch universities, KNAW, NWO and a number of research institutes, DANS datasets as well as descriptions of research projects, researchers and research institutes.
