The SLU Library gives students and employees at SLU access to a wide range of databases.

You find all our databases in Primo. There they are listed alphabetically, but you can also find databases by type or by subject. Here is a selection of Subject categories:

Some important databases


Primo provides a single, user-friendly interface to all of the library's resources and gives a good overview of what is available. If you need more specific information it might be better to use a database on that particular subject.

Web of Knowledge

Web of Science is probably our most used international database platform. In Web of Science you find the databases Web of Science Core Collection (1945-), CAB Abstracts (1910-), MEDLINE (1950-) and Zoological Record (1990-).


Scopus is a large general database and a good complement to Web of Science.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is Google's search engine for scientific material, and thanks to full-text search a good complement to other databases. Search example: "brown bear" OR "ursus arctos" population sweden searches for brown bear in combination with population and Sweden.


PubMed is a biomedical database also containing veterinary medicine. The references are classified using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), which makes searching for a specific subject easier.


Off campus access

As a student or employee you can have off campus access to e-resources through SLU's VPN service.
