Finding the right literature

It is very important that you support your thesis by referring to sufficient and up-to-date literature. Information on how to find the relevant literature is provided in the Master Thesis Lab bookcase. There are also courses on finding literature that are offered on a regular basis. If you want information about these courses, ask the SAM. The SAM can also make an appointment with the Library Information Specialist of your discipline. With her you can discuss all your specialized questions about finding literature in the specialized databases.


For more information on this subject see the website of the Faculty library. The library has online courses in finding literature and the use of the New Catalogue/digital library. Here you will find specialized databases, arranged by discipline. Want to search the internet more efficiently? Need some tips for using the Catalogue? Any other places you can find information? The Toolbox of the Leiden University Libraries will teach you new tricks screen by screen.
