The “Kleine Nacht” is organized by the TUHH Student Counseling Center in cooperation with the students’ union executive committee AStA, the TUHH library, the Center for Teaching and Learning (ZLL), University Sports, and the TU Computing Centre as well as several internal and external contributors.
Please pay special attention to our BookCrossing shelf at the entrance area of the library.
This subject week we would like to help you plan next holiday. Apart from the classic travel guides, we offer a colorful selection on the subject of travel. Maybe an interesting book is present for you? If not, you can search our catalog and enter your destination directly! Here are two helpful sample searches on the subject: travel guide 1 or travel guide 2
In our library there is more than just literature on Science – Technology – Engineering – Mathematics (STEM). You will find this shelf in the entrance area. It currently offers a selection of books that you would not expect!
Maybe something is interesting for you? All the books can be borrowed immediately. We will take care for interesting refill.
Citavi is now available in version 5.5. In addition to small improvements and bug fixes, there is now also a new function to group the bibliography of a work according to your own aspects: Changes Citavi 5.5 is already available for institutes via the software distribution service of the TU. In the Windows-Pools it stays until the winter semester with the version 5.4.
Citavi is still available only for Windows. This is to change this year, when the version 6 will add a web component.
And if you leave the TU Hamburg, but would like to use Citavi further: Citavi can be used freely if your project contains less than 101 titles. For larger projects, you can purchase a discounted license.
No EndNote Licences via Rechenzentrum
EndNote licenses for the desktop version can no longer be obtained from the Rechenzentrum.
The Online-Version EndNote Basic is still available to everyone. EndNote, by the way, has changed hands with Web of Science and now belongs to Clarivate Analytics.
The OpenSource Zotero software is about to update to version 5.0. This ends the Zotero era as a Firefox plugin. There will be only Zotero standalone. The changelog of the beta version shows which changes are still planned. It will surely be exciting again, which of the popular plugins will work in 5.0. Zotero Standalone is also available to institutes via the software distribution service of the computer center.
Data Sharing and Management Snafu in 3 Short Acts. NYU Health Sciences Library
TUHH is starting plan to set up its own institutional repository for research data. A topic that will accompany us – alongside all technology and workflows – is to make all data FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable.
FAIR Data Principles
One of the grand challenges of data-intensive science is to facilitate knowledge discovery by assisting humans and machines in their discovery of, access to, integration and analysis of, task-appropriate scientific data and their associated algorithms and workflows. A FAIR Data Publishing Group of FORCE11 has been discussing FAIR – a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable.
To be Findable:
F1. (meta)data are assigned a globally unique and eternally persistent identifier.
F2. data are described with rich metadata.
F3. (meta)data are registered or indexed in a searchable resource.
F4. metadata specify the data identifier.
To be Accessible:
A1 (meta)data are retrievable by their identifier using a standardized communications protocol.
A1.1 the protocol is open, free, and universally implementable.
A1.2 the protocol allows for an authentication and authorization procedure, where necessary.
A2 metadata are accessible, even when the data are no longer available.
To be Interoperable:
I1. (meta)data use a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation.
I2. (meta)data use vocabularies that follow FAIR principles.
I3. (meta)data include qualified references to other (meta)data.
To be Re-usable:
R1. meta(data) have a plurality of accurate and relevant attributes.
R1.1. (meta)data are released with a clear and accessible data usage license.
R1.2. (meta)data are associated with their provenance.
R1.3. (meta)data meet domain-relevant community standards.

In the last years the TUHH library has bought individual e-books from the publisher De Gruyter from time to time. In 2017 the complete e-book program from De Gruyter is available within TUHH intranet. At the end of the year the tub. will decide, also depending on usage, which small selection of titles will be included in its holdings permanently.
As long-established publisher the schedule of books by De Gruyter includes all subjects. Here you find a selection of titles interesting within TUHH:
