Corona crisis - Search and find online sources


Providing and receiving remote education is a challenge for both students and teachers. You will need to search and find all content in digital format.

Important to note in advance:
If you access sources at home, use the 'home access links' in the Databases A-Z list. With these links, the following icon  is visible. These links are also included in your course's LibGuide.

A few tips:

  • Add Library Access to your browser. Library Access gives you access to information from Zuyd Library's many databases.
  • Use our search engine DiZ = 'Search Information Sources Zuyd', a lot of online material that Zuyd Library licenses is available through DiZ.
  • Use Google Scholar as an alternative to DiZ, but make sure your settings are adjusted so you can see which sources are accessible for Zuyd students and staff. Take a look at the info clip 'full text@Zuyd in Google Scholar'.
  • In the LibGuides overview choose your study programme's LibGuide. A LibGuide is an online library guide in which all online sources relevant to a study programme have been put together.
  • Because you cannot now borrow physical books you can check for a title (or search for a subject) via Google Books. On Google Books, you can read parts of books. 
  • Enrol yourself in the Moodle Literature Research Course.
