Why we applied to the ORCID Global Participation Fund.
ORCID is an essential service for us. It allows scholars to connect to their research results globally and across multiple services. And ORCID offers the option to seamlessly authenticate to many services in the context of research. This makes it possible to log in to a service that supports this with a central login, regardless of institutional affiliation.
DSpace is the open source software that powers the most publication repositories in the world. Over 3000 installations are listed in the registry. They are distributed over all continents. DSpace or the variant DSpace-CRIS is also used to operate TUHH Open Research for Open Access publication, research data and research information at the TU Hamburg.
So what could be more obvious than an ORCID login under DSpace?
Software development is often an important part of scientific work at TUHH. Many of you use GitLab or GitHub to collaboratively create and share scientific software. But how can you best cite the software then?
As in previous years, the TUHH University Library will again provide you with current, scientific literature in 2023. With a few exceptions, we primarily negotiate unrestricted digital access for the TUHH.
The library card for our university library is free of charge for most of our users. Students and staff of the TUHH do not pay anything, nor do students of other state universities, pupils and academic staff of the Hamburg universities. Starting tomorrow, this will also be extended to trainees.
The University Library of TU Hamburg will close this year on Friday, 23. December 2022, at 6 pm for the Christmas holidays and the turn of the year. We will be back for you at our regular opening hours from Monday, 02. January 2023!
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Access to standards is changing; Perinorm will be discontinued at the end of the year. Beuth-Verlag, through which DIN standards and VDI guidelines are licensed by tub. will instead use a new platform: Nautos

You can switch between group rooms and workspaces via the drop-down menu.

If necessary, adjust the period for your reservation.
Don’t forget to bring your library card on the respective day. You will need it to confirm your reservation via the scanner in the entrance area. This is possible at the earliest 30 minutes before the scheduled time. If you do not check-in, your booking will expire 30 minutes after the start of the reservation.
If you no longer need your reservation, you can easily delete it under “My reservations & cancellation”. Here you will also find an overview of all your booked workspace.
