You should begin by identifying the central information resources in your research field. For more advice on how to identify them, please see the subject guides.
Finna search service also provides different approaches to information based on scientific fields or resource types.
Using just one database rarely offers enough information on a topic, so you should use multiple resources to gather enough information for your work.
Which information resource should you use to retrieve the information you need?
Examples of where to look for information are presented below.
Finna search service provides access to e-journals, e-books, reference databases, image databases, dictionaries and collection databases available at Aalto University. Some open access information resources are also available in Finna, but for a majority of resources the use is restricted to Aalto University's campus area.
Aalto University's students and personnel can use Finna remotely outside the University network. To access all the resources available in Finna remotely, please log in to the portal with your Aalto IT identifier.
Google Scholar is Google's search engine specialised in searching for scholarly information.
The SFX linking service available at Learning Centre is linked with Google Scholar.
