Books, articles and databases

The LUSEM library holds a broad variety of books and journals within the LUSEM subject areas. The main part of the collection consists of electronic material.

Where do I search for information?

LUBsearch is the entry point to all of the University libraries’ collective resources, both electronic and printed. A single search enables you to find articles, journals, doctoral theses, books and e-books. To restrict your search to printed books and e-books, use our library catalogue LUBcat. LUBsearch contains a large part of the database content owned by Lund University. Databases covered by LUBsearch are marked with a LUBsearch symbol in the database-list.

LUBcat - Library catalogue


Printed books are placed in our open collection. We also hold a collection of course books, primarily intended for students. Most printed books at the Lund University libraries can be ordered through LUBcat to be picked up at the LUSEM Library. To access e-books, you need your Lucat-ID.


Search for electronic articles in LUBsearch. Large parts of the material are available in full text. If you want to search for articles within a subject area, go to one of our subject databases. When using Google Scholar at work, many of our journals will be available in full text. If you use a computer outside of the Lund University network, you have to adjust the Google Scholar settings to get access to the full text supplied by the library. If you can’t find a full text through Google Scholar, please use the list of ePublications.
