Accessing Academic Databases Through Perpustakaan Nasional Republik Indonesia

Google Translate

Before exploring the online resources at the National Library of Indonesia, one may want to install the Google Translate plugin/extension in their browser.  Although much of the National Library's website includes English options, for some Google Translate will be invaluable.

As you explore the resources available through your NLoI, be sure to check out these great databases for academic research.  Please note the icons below are not links as one will need to access these databases while logged in to the NLoI website.
