  • GLORIA, the new search engine of the library is online!
    GLORIA (GEOMAR Library Ocean Research Information Access) offers various advantages compared to the traditional library catalogue and combines various search links offered on our website. Of course you can find everything you would expect in a library catalogue: including books and journals, print and electronic versions.

    Furthermore you can find “latest articles” from scientifically relevant journals, articles from Open Access repositories and also older articles and databases accessible through DFG National Licences. References and fulltext articles from our institutional repository “OceanRep”, bibliographies and research data (Pangaea) extend the search space.

    For detailed information and a tutorial on the functionalities of GLORIA click here.

  • Access to Scopus available! (Scopus is a large abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings; offered by Elsevier since 2004.)
