To accompany the digital Semester in Hamburg, the libraries are allowed to offer their lending service in compliance with the official regulations. Therefore, the TUHH University Library (tub.) will open from April 27, 2020 on Monday to Friday from 3 pm to 9 pm for self-lending and return of media. We hope that these opening hours are better suited to the digital semester and are curious to see how you will accept these times. Continue reading

In addition to the print editions, numerous titles are also or only 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!

Reserved titles can also be picked up there within 7 days. You will find your requested media all under the first letter of your last name and the last 4 digits of the library card in the shelf. When borrowing please use the self check system or our service at the desks.
Behind the service area and our pick-up shelf you will find our special offer shelf. At the beginning of the winter semester it serves as a first semester shelf and offers a selection of books especially for first-year students – from the textbook to the collection of formulas. Further copies of these books can be found in the textbook collection.
And also: if these books from the shelf for first-semester are available electronically, the QR-code on the reference panels contains the corresponding link. So: please access to the intranet and scan the QR-code.
Please search for your studies in our shelf for first-semester, welcome!
