Do you need current research literature on an important topic?
The research possibilities of Google Scholar are not enough for you?
You want to be more sure that you don’t miss anything?
For this purpose, the University Library (tub.) offers an important range of subject databases on the TUHH network. Databases important for the engineering and physical sciences such as Scopus, Web of Science or wti TEMA allow you to use specific search strategies.
You are a user of the tub. and study at another university or are a city user? And you unfortunately cannot use the computers in the reading rooms of the library due to the limited accessibility of the tub.?
Never mind, please feel free to make an appointment by e-mail with one of the tub.’s subject librarians! During a videoconference you can research together in specialist databases and receive the results by e-mail.
To prepare for the research procedure you are invited to watch this video (20 min., in German language!) from the bachelor seminar on “Academic Research and Writing” at TU Hamburg.
Starting on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, the tub will provide students of the TUHH with 91 single working places in the reading room. They can be used Monday to Friday from 3 to 9 pm. This offer will enable students with insufficient learning opportunities at home to work and learn in the library. Continue reading
Due to the digital semester at Hamburg’s universities, Hamburg’s libraries are also reacting to the situation. For this reason, a large number of online books from publishers are available at TUHH that were previously only available in printed form. The possibilities of access vary greatly in some cases, and not all of the offers are permanently available.
On request of teachers and students, the TUHH library purchased individual relevant textbooks for permanent online access at the TUHH:
- Industrial Microbiology / Wilson, David B. u.a. (Hrsg.) Weinheim: Wiley-VCH 2020. (Primarily suitable for online reading, access to PDFs via mit Shibboleth login, only a limited number of files can be downloaded within 24 hours)
- Nonlinear dynamics and chaos : with applications to physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering / Strogatz, Steven. 2. ed. Boca Raton: CRC Press Taylor & Francis Group 2018. (Complete download possible)
- Fundamentals of Human Resource Management / Gary Dessler. 5.ed. München: Pearson 2020
- Human Resource Management / Gary Dessler. 16. ed. München: Pearson 2020
- Organizational theory, design and change / Gareth R. Jones. 7. ed. München: Pearson 2013
- Human Resource Management / Robert Wayne Mondy, Joseph J. Martocchio. München: Pearson 2016
- Elektrotechnik / Manfred Albach. München: Pearson 2011.
The following applies to all the above-mentioned titles published by Pearson: Primarily suitable for online reading, only print or download of individual pages possible.
Additional books from all subjects
Financed by funds from the State and University Library, which has received funding from the Hamburg Behörde für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Gleichstellung (BWFG) for the supply of literature for the whole of Hamburg, access to the e-books of a number of publishers is now possible. Not all of these works are yet included in the tub.find catalogue. Much will be permanently available here. Some of them can also be counted among the offers only temporarily available at the TUHH due to the Corona crisis.
- Until July 31 2020 more than 150 textbooks from all subjects of the publisher Pearson are available. (Primarily suitable for online reading, only print or download of individual pages possible.)
- From publisher Campus 4 packages form the social and economical sciences have been bought (chapterwise download as PDF is possible, titles online in German language):

- Campus Sozialwissenschaften 2020
- Campus Business 2019
- Campus Business 2020
- Textbooks from all subjects of the publisher UTB until the end of the year (chapterwise download as PDF is possible, titles online in German language)
Particularly noteworthy among the products offered by this publisher are many works on the subject of ds “Academic research methods and writing” (look at the image above) :
- Theuerkauf, Judith: Schreiben Im Ingenieurstudium. Paderborn: Schöningh, 2012.
- Hirsch-Weber, Andreas, Stefan Scherer, Beate Bornschein, and Evelin Kessel: Wissenschaftliches Schreiben Und Abschlussarbeit in Natur- Und Ingenieurwissenschaften. Stuttgart: UTB, 2016.
- From the publisher Kohlhammer the following packages has been bought (chapterwise download as PDF is possible, titles online in German language, each package includes books from the previous year, i.e. a 2020 package contains titles from 2019):
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
The current corona situation shows how important free access to scientific information is. Therefore, the tub. offers services for open access publishing which are of course still available these days. We are working in the home office, sometimes with some restrictions, to further expand the offer.
Institutional Repository TORE TUHH Open Research
You can upload documents online to the TUHH Open Research repository at any time. This means that your publications are available worldwide without barriers! Please give us some time for the release of your documents. You are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit an online application using the form if you want to publish an article in a pure Open Access journal. You can also contact us at email@example.com or find information on the funding guidelines here.
Support on the various aspects of Open Access and scientific publishing can be found in the library.
Open Access search
Are you looking for Open Access documents? Here you will find a – continuously updated – overview of Open Access offerings, divided into three categories:
- Open Access versions of paywall articles;
- Purely Open Access publications;
- preprint servers/open repositories.
Digital, open and networked – academic and scientific work is facing similar challenges to learning and teaching in this age. In view of the current situation, the seminar “Academic Research and Writing”, until last semester performed face-to-face, will be completely converted to a digital format for the summer semester 2020.
If the summer semester 2020 at the TUHH starts as planned on 20.4.2020 in purely digital form, this bachelor seminar organized by the tuhh library will offer an introduction to the many aspects of academic work: finding topics, specialist information, knowledge organisation, writing, presenting and publishing. Suggestions for thinking about one’s own learning, information and writing processes – supplemented by practical recommendations and tips – make it possible to write better Bachelor and Master theses.
As is probably the case for most of the courses of the non-technical offer (NTA) in complementary studies at the TUHH, registration in Stud.IP will probably be possible from April 10, 2020. After the registration phase there will be a “raffle” of places.
A description of the course can also be found in the annotated course catalogue. Otherwise, the contributions in a weblog (German language only, sorry!), which has been accompanying the seminar as a kind of showcase since winter semester 2013/14, offer a good overview of the topics!
Electronic media will be delivered to your home via e-mail.

Prof. Robert Zepf, Direktor der Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Hamburg:
„In der jetzigen Situation ist die Aufgabe der Bibliotheken, verlässliche wissenschaftliche Informationen bereitzustellen, von besonderer Bedeutung. Die neuen Zugriffsmöglichkeiten auf unsere digitalen Ressourcen stellen sicher, dass die Hamburgerinnen und Hamburger trotz Schließung des Bibliotheksgebäudes Zugang zu diesem Wissen haben.“ (Press release BWFG, 30.03.2020)
