Search articles and books


LIBRIS is a national search service providing information on titles held by Swedish libraries. You can see which libraries hold the title you are interested in, and you can see if it is available for loan, or as a full text document on the Internet.

Support for e-resources – you are welcome to use this form to contact us if you have problems accessing the databases and e-resources provided by the library.


GetIt@BTH is a linking system which gives access to full text and/or other useful services directly from the database/portal where you are searching.

When you click an GetIt-button or GetIt-link (GetIt@BTH) in a database, it will lead you to an GetIt-menu in a new window, where you are offered different linking options and other services.

The GetIt@BTH menu offers:

  • direct linking to the full text (of an article or e-book), if it is available at BTH and if you have a user account.
  • direct linking to an order form where you can order the article/book.
  • more services depending on where you are searching from and what reference you started from.
