In a combined effort with the ICT staff of the faculty, old issues of TEM have been added to the on-line TEM archive in PDF format (up till now: 2001, 2003, 2004; other years will be added soon). These old issues are fully indexed and you can search the complete content of the contributions through the new TEM searchpage. There's also a more functional menu, in Dutch and in English, that helps you to navigate swiftly on the site.
