How convenient would it be if there was a direct link to a PDF file on an article you found in the AUAS Catalogue? The LibKey tool makes this possible for a large number of articles. The UvA and AUAS Libraries have a trial subscription until July 2021. So check out our Catalogue and start downloading those PDF's.

In CataloguePlus of the AUAS Library you will always find a reference to the article page of the publisher with a link to the PDF version of the article. Now there is a faster way to consult articles: during the trial license for LibKey, many articles also contain a direct link to the PDF version of the article and a link to the table of contents of the relevant journal issue.
