Please pay special attention to our BookCrossing shelf at the entrance area of the library.
In this subject week we would like to get you in the mood for the 2nd Maritime Night at the TUHH. From your book donations we have put together a varied mixture of non-fiction and novels, detective stories or adventures. Enjoy reading!
According the motto “tub. – talking and making” you are invited to make little handicrafts with paper (for children and adults), little bookmarks or booklets with tipps for using information for academic work, as well as to talk about intellectual property rights and other challenges when handling information and working as academic.
Visit us between 1 pm and 6 pm at our stand in the Denickestr. in opposite of the students’ restaurant (Mensa):
Starting on Thursday, June 14, 2018, there will be our traditional book flea market in the TUHH library.
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Anyone who has always wanted to know more about unpublished stories, poems, maps or notes about Middle-earth should also take a look.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.
