Running trials for Public Administration

  • United Nations iLibrary is a comprehensive source for digital content published by the United Nations. It provides access to publications, journals, data, and series published by the United Nations Secretariat, and its funds and programs. Although it is possible to find reports of all UN agencies on their respective websites, the UN iLibrary is a one-stop-shop. The Erasmus University Library provided trial access until 1 July, 2021 and now requires your feedback. Give feedback on this trial here (open until 11 July 2021)
  • Several publishers have made content temporarily available due to COVID-19 response. For an overview of this content, visit the A to Z database list.

Please contact your faculty liaison if you think any temporary content should be part of our permanent collection.
