To look for references go to the Search page. The Help page offers tips on how to search for references and to save the results.

We also continue our efforts to ensure that all the open access and restricted publications that have become accessible from the Internet after their inclusion in the database are linked from their Musalit record.

If you find any errors in a bibliographic record, would like to add a reference or have information about a missing link, please contact us. We also welcome comments on how to improve Musalit.
