Coming to the library at noontime for a coffee! In the end of June and in July you are invited to attend our “tub.talks”. After a brief impulse as thematic input, there will be room for joint discussions and a coffee, this is the new format, that we would like to continue with this second series after its launch in March – at that time under the label „Coffee talks“.

The topics include aspects of using information, like publishing, researching or visualising as well as issues of the (new) German intellectual property law.

4 dates in in June and July, each on Monday, 1.15 pm to 1.45 pm in room 0.004, in the large group room behind the information desk:

  • Monday, June 25, 2018

Use the opportunities for exchange, to ask questions, to learn from one another and to discuss. Add your own questions and suggestions (also for further topics for additional talks)!

We are happy to meet you!

More ACS journals

Two years ago the tub. changed access for journals of the American Chemical Society (ACS) from print to online. This year the tub. offers access to further ACS journals within the TUHH intranet.

A journals package has been licensed, which includes more journals by paying not too much additional costs. Additional journals has been selected from those journals not accessible until now, whose „access denied“ figures has been the highest in 2017.

A grammar book for advanced learners

And another grammar and further books on the German treasury of words

And in the library!?

For some time you already have found printed dictionaries and materials for language courses (books in our catalog tub.find) for loan in room 1.006 (in a corridor starting from the upper reading room in the TUHH library) as well as two [tu:speak] rooms as rooms for practicing German (1.007 und 1.008) equipped with two PCs each.

New to the library? 6. ebooks

Many books are 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!
