Citavi has released version 5 with many new features in April. Campus licence for TUHH is valid for Citavi 5 as well as for Citavi 4.
One thing has not changed though: Citavi has remained a proprietary programm which requires MS Windows. But if you are a Windows user you might enjoy the new features to read, annotate, and analyze full texts in PDF format:
Highlight important text passages in Citavi.
Link quotations and tasks to a specific place in the text, so you can quickly find a passage again when you begin writing your paper — from the Word Add-In as well.
It works the other way as well — directly display comments or tasks by clicking the place in the text they refer to.
Save tables and images from a PDF as image quotations.
Quickly add keywords to a reference by using the keywords in the PDF file.
Import highlights created with another PDF program (for example, on a tablet) so that you can work away from your laptop or desktop computer.
Export annotations into the PDF file, to make the information available to others or in order to work with the document on another device.
Correct management of research data (RDM) is important if LLJ is to achieve a smooth transition of the research work into potential products. LLJ is therefore implementing a Data Management Plan according to curation principles and H202 guidance. This work is being led by Dr. Graham Blyth at the University of Leeds. RDM and Open Data Management is something that UK universities have had to take on board somewhat ahead of their Continental European counterparts because it is a requirement of many UK funding bodies. Already in 2005 the UK Digital Curation Centre (DCC) was established, which has become a world-leading centre of expertise in digital information curation with a focus on building capacity, capability and skills for research data management across the UK’s higher education research community.

In cooperation with TuTech Leeds provided a learning opportunity for members of Hamburg University of Technology’s library staff to profit from University of Leeds experience. 21-22 April Beate Rajski and Martin Bilz who are responsible for digital services at TUHH visited Graham and his colleague Rachel Proudfoot at Leeds to share experiences. They were joined by Dr Angus Whyte of DCC. The meeting provided an opportunity to share lessons learned by LeedsRoaDMaP and discuss how these could be applied to TUHH RDM: LLJ supports transfer of knowledge on Open Data Management
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.
Due to Maintenance Work the CIP-Pool will remain closed for the whole day on Thursday 19-03-2015. The closing will include both – the Pool in Reading Room II and the Pool in our Room 1005 upstairs. We apologize for any inconveniences.
TUBdok the open access repository of TUHH started in 2002. With TUBdok, members of TUHH can easily publish scientific content free and unhindered to anybody in the world. You can use TUBdok for publishing your Ph.D. as well as for publishing your post- or pre-prints of article in paywalled journals (“green road”).
In the last few years TUBdok has undergone a couple of small changes, but it stayed more or less the same. That is to change today: it is the date of the TUBdok relaunch. A new layout makes TUBdok easily identifiable as service of TUHH Library. But of course there is a lot more to discover besides layout:
We have added more persistent identifiers:
All publications will receive DOIs and Handles next to URN.
Choose the most suitable creative commons licence:
Let yourself be guided through the selection process or even go for CC0.
You need to observe an embargo?
Indicate when your work may be published, then let TUBdok do the rest.
Subscribe to new publications:
Stay up-to-date with new publications via RSS or email.
There are about 1,200 publications on TUBdok already. And of course all of them will stay accessible via URN and their old URL. Additionally they are assigned Digital Object Identifiers (DOI). DOIs are the most commonly used identifiers in online publication business.
For quite some time already we are offering you a bookscanner on the 1st floor. Since the offer is well accepted and used, we decided to enhance our service with a second bookscanner. You can find it at “PC-Pool 5″ on the ground floor.
The new book2net scanner is the same modell as the one on the 1st floor with just a slightly modified design. Essentially nothing changes in the usage. Just a document to scan and an usb stick is required (did you know: you can borrow usb sticks for 7 days at the loan desk). Scans are started using the touchscreen or the buttons on the device itself and can subsequently be saved on the stick. Our experience is that the scanner works without nearly ever running into trouble. Anyway, for large scans we suggest saving on regular intervalls, e.g. by chapters.
The following product video illustrates the handling of the bookscanner well:
Should you run into problems anyway, please refer to the information desk.
Beluga – the catalog for Hamburg Libraries – started in december 2012. From today on, beluga offers a lot more content: millions of articles can be searched via the new article tab. If available links to full text are shown. You can also check the holdings of the other Hamburg Libraries.
Of course: If you are are using TUBfind at TUHH, you are already accustomed to searching within millions of entries. Also data from Web od Science and wiso databases are only included in TUBfind. But if you are interested in finding out which literature is available within Hamburg Libraries, then you should give the new Beluga a try:
