New to the Library? 1. Library Card

Library Card

If you want to borrow books from the university library in order to use them at home or on campus, you need a library card.

For students of TUHH this card is free, but you have to apply for it and come to the library personally. Within a few minutes you will receive your library card and get started.

” Apply ” means that you log on with your personal data here.

Pickup is available at the circulation counter in the university library from Monday – Thursday 9:00am – 7:00pm and Friday 9:00am – 6:00pm, if you present the following:

  • Identity card or passport including resident`s registration document
  • Student ID ( or enrollment or HVV ticket )

A valid email address is very important for a smooth service – e. g. for reminder emails at the end of the loan period!

New to the library? 6. ebooks

Many books are available electronically. This is indicated by the button ” Volltext @ TUHH “. The link on this button leads to the download offer of the appropriate publisher. The content can be downloaded as a PDF as a whole book ( partly as EPUB for ebook readers ) or article wise, depending on the specifications of the publisher. For licensing reasons this is only possible from the intranet of TUHH. On computers with internet – login registered readers save their ebooks either on a USB stick or any cloud or even send it via email. Therefore there are no loan periods. As a student at the TUHH you can download the ebooks on your own PC – however, a VPN connection has to be maintained.

Most publishers offer an access via “Shibboleth” (without VPN) too. Klick here for further information of TUHH intranet and use of e-media!

We ask for your understanding if on Wednesday around the library entrance it will get a bit more noisy!

Hello, here they are again …

… our mini researcher of school accompanying project : “Kinderforscher” at the TUHH.
Since 2006, this project became a regular fixture at the TUHH.
Within this project, nearly 25 pupils  from 5 different primary schools in Hamburg visit our library on the follwing Tuesdays:  November 10th,  November 17th, November 24th, December 1st, December 8th 2015.

The children should lern something about our library on a playful way. Perhaps during the tour in the reading room 1 (bottom) it won`t always go very quiet, because too exciting and new that’s all for the kids.
We ask for your understanding and apologize for the 45 minutes turbulence. Please remember – everyone starts off small! And the “Kinderforscher” project is a great opportunity.
