Find journals - SFX
The journal registry of the National and University Library of Iceland links to some 20,000 electronic journals, i.e. both those available under the country-wide subscription (see hvar.is) and those subscribed to by the library and open-access journals found online. Access to journals subscribed to by the library is limited to the network of the University of Iceland. The registry also contains information about print journals the library subscribes to. The OPAC Gegnir contains information about print journals in 200 libraries in Iceland.
