Books to borrow

On December 18, UFA celebrates its 100th anniversary. It was founded in Berlin and from 1922 onwards films were also produced in Potsdam Babelsberg. The UFA experienced its heyday in the 1920s to 1940s. During this time she played a major role in German film history. Well-known productions are e. g. Dr. Mabuse, Der blaue Engel or Die Feuerzangenbowle. Today, UFA is the market leader in German television and produces entertainment for the masses.

On this occasion, we present you media on the subject of film on our shelf in the entrance area of the library.

Cookies, Truffles and Jam for a Good Cause

Trüffel, Kekse und Marmelade. Plakat

Sale on Tuesday, 28.11.17, from 9 am.

Once again, many TUHH hands have tackled Milli Antolagic to help her bake cookies, make truffles and cook jams. On Tuesday, Milli and her team will be in the library at 9:00 am selling their sweet gifts. As in previous years, the proceeds will go to the children’s hospice Sternenbrücke.

Until now everything was sold out until the early afternoon. Early arrival ensures successful shopping!

In the entrance area of the library it will probably be a bit louder than usual on Tuesday.

Online books in German and English on law

Online books from the publisher Nomos are now available within the TUHH intranet. Some are also available in English language.

In case you want to have an introduction in law:

There they are again: the children’s researchers of the school-accompanying project Kinderforscher at the TUHH. Since 2006, this project has become a permanent fixture at the TUHH.

Within this program, up to 24 pupils from the 3rd and 4th grade from 4 different schools in Hamburg will discover our library under the motto:

“Where is the knowledge of the researchers stored?”.

These dates are planned:

21.11.2017, 05.12.2017, 19.12.2017, 09.01.2018, always Tuesdays from 4.00pm – 5.30pm:

It goes without saying that during the guided tour in reading room 1 (below) it is not always so quiet – therefore thank you for your understanding.


Join us on Hamburg Open Science #Jobs

Update 21.11.17: D-17-200 and D-17-194 contracts until 31.12.2020. Applications until 5.12.17

Hamburg wants Open Science! And we want competent people who work with us on this for the TU Hamburg. Initially for 12 months, but hopefully two more years afterwards.

Deadline for applications is 29.11.2017

With the Hamburg Open Science (HOS) programme, Hamburg is implementing a strategy for the expansion of Open Access and Open Science that has been developed across universities. The University of Hamburg (UHH), the Technical University of Hamburg (TUHH), the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) and many other universities are involved. From 2018 onwards, implementation will be carried out jointly in the institutions within the framework of the following four programme lines: Open Access publications, research data management, research information systems and the design of digital cultural change.

The TUHH Open Science (TOS) project group is being set up at the TUHH for research data management and research information system. This is also where the HOS research data management program line is managed.

The targets for 2018 are:

  • Conception and implementation of a prototype for a research information system based on the open source software DSpace-CRIS.
  • Conception and implementation of a prototype for an institutional research data repository also based on the open source software DSpace-CRIS.

We are looking for four new research assistants with know-how and a desire for university, open science and the beautiful city of Hamburg with the following focal points:

  1. Teamleitung und Projektsteuerung mit Schwerpunkt Forschungsinformationssystem E14 TV-L
    Stellenausschreibung D-17-200
  2. Konzeption und Aufbau des Forschungsdatenrepositories E13 TV-L
    Stellenausschreibung D-17-199
  3. Konzeption und Aufbau Forschungsdateninformationssystem und Forschungsdatenrepository E13 TV-L

#OAWeek2017 – tub.dok: Open in order to show your Research

tub.dok is the open access repository of the TUHH for freely available publications of members of the TUHH in full text. We make sure that the publications can be permanently stored and found in various services worldwide.

tub.dok LogoWe are very pleased that we were able to extend tub.dok with three important functions during the International Open Access Week 2017:


ORCID iDNo misunderstandings: With ORCID iD you can clearly assign your research results to your person. You can now also use this for your publications in tub. dok. For this purpose, we have introduced research profiles that you can link to your ORCID iD.

On our ORCID in tub.dok page we have described how this works.

2. Statistics

Beispiel tub.dok-StatistikAnyone who publishes also wants to know how the publication is perceived. We now display the statistics for your documents on tub.dok much more prominently. And behind each button are detailed evaluations by period, region, country or city.

The most popular titles are already on the start page. Older titles have a certain advantage here, of course. 🙂

3. Secondary publications

tub.dok: Identifier für Metadatentub.dok offers you a reliable place to publish journal articles from pay-walled journals via the so-called Green Way Open Access.

At the moment this has to be done manually. To make it easier for you to enter the journal data for your article, you can now prepopulate data in tub.dok. Start uploading by entering the identifier. This can be the PubMed ID, the DOI or the arXiv ID. Then the publisher’s data will be transferred to your publication form.

We hope that we will be able to import these articles into tub.dok automatically in the medium term. So far, this has already been possible with the Open Access publisher MDPI.


Nothing is perfect and we can always get better. We look forward to receiving your suggestions, questions and criticism at tubdok@tuhh.de

The favourite chair has seat padding

The favourite chair has seat cushions and armrests! Many thanks to all of you who took part in the test sitting and survey in the library foyer!

Your wishes have of course been taken into account: from now on you can use the new furniture in the group rooms 1.006 and 1.009 on the upper floor.
Room 0004 on the ground floor also has colourful chairs with flexible backrests.

Your feedback has made it possible to identify clear trends – the favourite chair of most participants has upholstered seats and armrests. In your free text answers we learned that you like to change the sitting position at work and don’t like stiff or fixed backrests at all, but like upholstery.

Also the procurement of individual workplaces is to be initiated this year due to your wishes. These measures will help us to increase the diversity of our diverse workplaces. We hope that this will improve the quality of your stay at the university library.
