Useful information, Resources

The library invites you to (re)discover its main resources accessible remotely without the VPN and without the connection to the school network.

These are Scopus, ScienceDirect and Cairn.




Scopus is one of the largest abstract and citation databases of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.

Scopus delivers the most comprehensive overview of the world’s research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences and arts and humanities. In addition to the search tools, Scopus also provides features to help researchers go beyond search, into discovery, analysis and visualization.
