New to the library? 6. ebooks

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!
