Starting on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, the tub will provide students of the TUHH with 91 single working places in the reading room. They can be used Monday to Friday from 3 to 9 pm. This offer will enable students with insufficient learning opportunities at home to work and learn in the library. Continue reading
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.
On request of teachers and students, the TUHH library purchased individual relevant textbooks for permanent online access at the TUHH:
- Industrial Microbiology / Wilson, David B. u.a. (Hrsg.) Weinheim: Wiley-VCH 2020. (Primarily suitable for online reading, access to PDFs via mit Shibboleth login, only a limited number of files can be downloaded within 24 hours)
- Nonlinear dynamics and chaos : with applications to physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering / Strogatz, Steven. 2. ed. Boca Raton: CRC Press Taylor & Francis Group 2018. (Complete download possible)
- Fundamentals of Human Resource Management / Gary Dessler. 5.ed. München: Pearson 2020
- Human Resource Management / Gary Dessler. 16. ed. München: Pearson 2020
- Organizational theory, design and change / Gareth R. Jones. 7. ed. München: Pearson 2013
- Human Resource Management / Robert Wayne Mondy, Joseph J. Martocchio. München: Pearson 2016
- Elektrotechnik / Manfred Albach. München: Pearson 2011.
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.
- Until July 31 2020 more than 150 textbooks from all subjects of the publisher Pearson are available. (Primarily suitable for online reading, only print or download of individual pages possible.)
- From publisher Campus 4 packages form the social and economical sciences have been bought (chapterwise download as PDF is possible, titles online in German language):
- Campus Sozialwissenschaften 2019
- Campus Sozialwissenschaften 2020
- Campus Business 2019
- Campus Business 2020
- Textbooks from all subjects of the publisher UTB until the end of the year (chapterwise download as PDF is possible, titles online in German language)
Particularly noteworthy among the products offered by this publisher are many works on the subject of ds “Academic research methods and writing” (look at the image above) :
- Theuerkauf, Judith: Schreiben Im Ingenieurstudium. Paderborn: Schöningh, 2012.
- Hirsch-Weber, Andreas, Stefan Scherer, Beate Bornschein, and Evelin Kessel: Wissenschaftliches Schreiben Und Abschlussarbeit in Natur- Und Ingenieurwissenschaften. Stuttgart: UTB, 2016.
- From the publisher Kohlhammer the following packages has been bought (chapterwise download as PDF is possible, titles online in German language, each package includes books from the previous year, i.e. a 2020 package contains titles from 2019):
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!
For further requests and where there is a need for further information on possible services during the closure period please write an email to the TUHH library (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will get in touch with you. Please also check our homepage from time to time.
Thank you very much for your understanding.
Last summer marked the 200th birthday of Eunice Foote. The now somewhat better known women’s rights activist from the USA was one of the rare female researchers in the field of physical sciences in the 19th century. On the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8, Eunice Foote will be briefly introduced here.
There they are again :.. the children’s researchers of the school-accompanying project Kinderforscher at the TUHH! Since 2006, this project has become a permanent factor at the TUHH.
Within this program, up to 25 pupils from the 3rd and 4th grade from 4 different schools will discover our library under the motto:
“Where is the knowledge of the researchers stored?”.
These dates are planned:
|Wednesday, 20-11-19||4:00pm – 5:30pm|
|Tuesday, 03-12-19||4:00pm – 5:30pm|
|Thursday, 19-12-19||2:15pm – 3:45pm|
|Tuesday, 07-01-20||4:00pm – 5:30pm|
It goes without saying that during the guided tour in the reading room on the ground floor, things cannot always go quietly – that is why we ask for your understanding! Thank you!
In the winter semester 2019/20 the project “Hamburg Open Science” (HOS) will host the lecture series “Openness in Science” at the University of Hamburg (mondays, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., University main building, lecture hall C).
Lectures (in German!):
The lectures cover the entire spectrum of Open Science and Open Education:
- Is openness a basic value or ideology?
- Why and how is Open Access published?
- What do Open Educational Resources (OER) mean for digitisation in education
- How can research data be managed in practice?
- What significance do copyright and data protection have for Open Science and Open Education?
- Why is data literacy becoming increasingly important?
- How do citizens create knowledge with Citizen Science?
As part of its 100th anniversary the ZBW – Leibniz-Informationszentrum Wirtschaft (ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for the Economy) is showing that Open Science can also be exhibited. You can visit the exhibition “Open Up! How digitisation is changing science” in Hamburg until shortly before Christmas.
The exhibition consists of the thematic displays “Digital connectivity”, “New types of publication” and “Finding Literature”. It tries to make the black box “Science”, i.e. the question “How does science actually work”, more transparent to the general public. In the end this is the core of Open Science, as Guido Scherp – Head of the Open Science Transfer Department at the ZBW – also writes in the short booklet accompanying the exhibition:
Basically, Open Science is about improving the trustworthiness and the quality of research in a digitally linked age. The most important instrument for this is openness, resp. transparency.
The accompanying booklet, which is available in German and in English, provides a brief and concise overview of Open Science.
Open Access, Open Data, Open Educational Resources, Open Methodology, Open Science, Open Source, Open Peer Review – movements dedicated to the openness, transparency and accessibility of information. These values are associated with the prospect of participation, diversity and equality. If possible, knowledge should be available and usable free of charge for all. But what exactly does openness mean? Continue reading
The Open Access Week from 21 to 27 October 2019 at the TUHH will be opened on 21 October at 12:30 h by Prof. Dr. Kuchta (Vice President Teaching) and Prof. Dr. Timm-Giel (Vice President Research). We cordially invite you to visit us in the library (Building J, Rotunde tub.). Continue reading
As every year in October, the International Open Access Week, this time from October 21st until October 27th 2019, will provide a worldwide forum and platform for events and activities for open access to scientific information.
The Hamburg University of Technology TU Hamburg participates as always. From October 21st to October 25th, a varied programme awaits you at the TUHH. This time the focus lies on the handling of data. Impulse lectures and an open workshop will cover this topic. The opening will take place through a poster walk in the rotunda of the University Library.
