The ScienceDirect portal, designed specifically for Ukrainian institutions, offers training videos, answers to frequently asked questions, and other materials to help researchers gain knowledge, as well as lists of titles, promotional materials and reference guides on reports to use to support the needs of librarians.

To help you make the most of your access to ScienceDirect, we invite you to join a webinar that introduces you to:
