Below, you will find links and databases according to "Media", to make the search process easier if you are looking specifically for E-book or statistics. The respective time period of the publication should be given next to the item name. If, for example, it is between time period 1870-2008 then it means that the full text (entire article) of the publication is free. On the other hand if it is from / after the year 2009, only abstracts (short summaries not full texts) of articles are free of charge.

You will find tips on the use of databases, search engines, as well as a explanation on open access server here.
