Library Card

If you want to borrow books from the university library in order to use them at home or on campus, you need a library card.

For students of TUHH this card is free, but you have to apply for it and come to the library personally. Within a few minutes you will receive your library card and get started.

” Apply ” means that you log on with your personal data here.

Pickup is available at the circulation counter in the university library from Monday – Thursday 9:00am – 7:00pm and Friday 9:00am – 6:00pm, if you present the following:

  • Identity card or passport including resident`s registration document
  • Student ID ( or enrollment or HVV ticket )

A valid email address is very important for a smooth service – e. g. for reminder emails at the end of the loan period!

Today is Tolkien Reading Day!

 

The 25th of March is certainly marked red in calenders of many reading enthusiasts because today is “Tolkien Reading Day”. The celebration of the works and fantastic worlds of the British author J.R.R. Tolkien has taken place since 2003.

The date is not chosen randomly as the 25th of March marks the fall of the Dark Lord Sauron in Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings”-Trilogy.

For patrons of the tub. it is therefore recommended to take a glimpse in „A companion to J.R.R. Tolkien“ (available within TUHH intranet). Among other things the scientific work provides an insight into the life of Tolkien as well as defining topics in his works.

Anyone who has always wanted to know more about unpublished stories, poems, maps or notes about Middle-earth should also take a look.

Patrons of the library can also view further scholarly engagement with Tolkien’s work in the Journal of Tolkien Research. Here you can learn more about the flora of Middle-earth or the general representation of nature in Tolkien’s works.

We hope you enjoy browsing, reading and marveling.
