Licensed resources

Access to licensed databases was obtained with a paid membership of the IAP in national consortia or individual access purchasesů.

The databases are available from all IAP computers, based on the registered IP addresses.

The databases are divided into full text databases (containing full texts of articles, books, etc.) and bibliographic databases (containing bibliographic information: titles, authors, source documents, abstracts, etc.).
