Catalog tub.find – new titles missing at present

Featured

tub.find in Pad

In the course of the growing together of BSZ and GBV there are starting difficulties, which probably last longer. Therefore our catalog and discovery system tub.find is not up to date since 15-03-2019.

That is why we recommend not only to use our catalog tub.find for literature searches, but also to check in the classic catalog interface whether the title you want is part of the tub. stock. We do it too! Whether inquiries of our users on most diverse channels or locally or also with interlibrary loan orders – we look at present for security in both data base systems.

If you have any questions or need support, please do not hesitate to contact us at the service desk in the library. We ask for your understanding for the confusing situation!

Unpaywall: The fast way to Open Access Articles

Reference Open ContentInstead of paying a fee for downloading the full text take the reference to a freely accessible version!

There is now support for your access to closed journal articles. On our reading room PCs you will find the browser plugin unpaywall, which is available for the Internet browsers Firefox and Chrome.

When surfing on the websites of scientific journals, provider platforms or databases, a green lock signals the presence of an Open Access publication of the article after a few seconds. A click on the symbol “Green lock” leads you to the free full text.

Unpaywall in action

Test the example in the reading room!

We also recommend that you download the plugin for your own use, as unpaywall unlike other sites only identifies legal Open Access versions of paid content. It is also important to note that this open access version does not visually correspond to the publisher’s version, as layout and logos are usually not allowed to be used. Also, an embargo period must often be observed when publishing the preprint or an accepted manuscript. The older the article, the more likely it is to be found.

If you have any questions, please contact our E-Mail-Logo Open Access Team.

Ten years World Heritage Wadden Sea

At the end of June 2009, the UNESCO added the German and Dutch Wadden Sea to its World Heritage List. In 2011 the area was extended to include the Wadden Sea around Hamburg and in 2014 the Danish Wadden Sea followed.

In addition, we present you a selection of literature on our action shelf.

You can now find the action shelf behind the pick-up shelf of the magazine requirements.

We hope for your interest. Borrowing expressly requested.

Our selection is also available in Library Thing.

DWA Set of Rules only with login

DWAdirekt
Since 2013 the DWA Set of Rules of the German Association for Water, Wastewater and Waste (DWA) has been available via access with IP address of the TU Hamburg. Now, access has changed to access via login.

Please choose the website DWAdirekt and register yourself with your TUHH mail address at the link “Meine Institution/Organisation hat ein Großkundenabo zum Regelwerk” (My institution has a subscricption to access the Set of Rules”). You will get a mail with a link to finish your registration.

Afterwards you can access to the DWA Set of Rules via Login at DWAdirekt. Until now there seems to exist no search interface in English

The DWA Set of Rules is viewed in Germany as the general basis for planning, construction and operation of plants in water, wastewater and waste management, as well as in soil conservation. It makes a considerable contribution to keeping the cost of environmental protection at a reasonable level.

More self-service: pick up media during opening hours

With the beginning of the summer semester 2019, we are expanding our self-service offer:

After the service area has been restructured, you will be able to pick up reserved media from our stock (requirements from the closed stacks, reservations) not only during our service hours, but also during the entire opening hours of the University Library, including weekends!

How does it work?

Slip of paper when ordering books

  • We will make the media you have requested from the magazine available for you on the pick-up shelf. This will soon be available on the site of the current Information service desk – sorted by user in the stack!
  • The order characteristic for the individual allocation will be the imprint in the middle of the respective order form of the volume: namely the first letter of your surname, followed by the last 4 digits of your library card – this serves for anonymisation.
  • You record the volumes intended for you and take care of the booking at the self-booking machine – during the service time, booking is of course still possible at our counter.
  • By the way, journal volumes no longer have to be booked. In any case they are only permitted for use in the library rooms. Interlibrary loan media will continue to be available at the service desks for the time being.
     

For this project, of course, retooling and conversion actions are necessary, which we want to carry out from Thursday, 28-3-19 until Friday, 29-3-19. We apologize for any inconvenience.

On these two days the previous service areas will be separated as a “construction site”. However, from Thursday we will set up a mobile service corner for you before the passage to the textbook collection. We will try to cover our entire offer during the construction and clearing period, supported by the automatic self-check-out machine. The spatial change of perspective for staff and audience will help both sides to get used to new processes together. We will be happy to answer your questions on site!

Until the weekend you will find the service desks on the right hand side again when you enter the library – in terms of space and content “concentrated” as a central contact point for your enquiries and concerns – we look forward to hearing from you!
