Searching in subject databases via video conference

Finding subject information - databases
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.

More books online

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.

Textbooks

On request of teachers and students, the TUHH library purchased individual relevant textbooks for permanent online access at the TUHH:

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.

Opening for loan starting April 27, 2020 3pm

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

Bachelor Seminar “Academic Research and Writing” digitally in Summer Semester 2020

lifecycle of scholarly communication

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!
