The search box
Enter one or more words. You will be able to continue narrowing your search in the discovery tool EDS, where the majority of the library information resources can be found.
Filters in the search box
Articles: Articles from scholarly journals. Using the peer-review facet in the left menu you will limit to articles reviewed by experts in the field.
E-books and printed books: Online books in full text as well as print books. Please note that theses are not found using this filter.
Printed books: Make a request if the book is currently on loan or if you want to collect it at a different branch library.
E-journals: Enter words from the title of the journal to get to the list of e-journals.
Databases: Enter words from the database title or subject area to get to the list of List of databases. Use English terms. Databases often cover large areas and the search terms therefore need to be broad, for example Physics.

Access to electronic resources
Students and employees at Chalmers can access databases, e-books and e-journals both on and off campus.
Login with CID
When you try to use a restricted electronic resource an identify screen appears. Please identify yourself using Chalmers ID (CID).
Please note that several electronic resources require identification also on campus.
Start at Chalmers Library's website
The easiest way to access e-resources is via the library’s website. When clicking the link to the article, e-book or database, the identify screen is displayed automatically when needed. You can also identify yourself here.
Use the Link Resolver
If you see an "@Chalmers button", click it and it will take you to the full text of an article when available. If the full text is not available, you are welcome to request the article or book.
Select Chalmers University Library web address in Google Scholar’s settings. This way you will receive full text links to resources held by the library when using Google Scholar.
Copy & paste or reload via proxy
If you locate an e-resource via a search engine or receive a full-text link some other way, you will not be recognized as a Chalmers user. You can copy the title and search for the title in the library’s search engine.
You can also reload the page via the library’s proxy server.
- Save the proxy bookmarklet as a favourite.
- Locate the article, e-book, or database you need, click on the bookmarklet.
- The page is reloaded and you can login and check if Chalmers has access to the full-text.
Identify yourselves with OpenAthens at the e-resource platforms
At several publisher platforms, databases etc, you can login with your CID through the service OpenAthens. Look for "Sign in via your institution", "OpenAthens" or similar.
