More than 18,000 online scientific periodicals are accessible from the EPFL computer network (on the campus site or by way of the VPN). In addition, more than 4,000 printed periodicals, 600 of which are currently on subscription, are also available to the public in the Library. They are all referenced in BEAST.
In order to ensure better conservation of the paper-based collections, the library’s printed periodicals can be looked up only on-site. However the Library offers an on-demand scanning service for EPFL researchers, teachers, PhD students and employees.
