There’s Cookies, Truffles and Jam again

 

Sale on Tuesday, 26-11-19, from 9:am.

Once again, many TUHH hands have tackled Milli Antolagic to help her bake cookies, make truffles and cook jams. On Tuesday, Milli and her team will be in the library at 9:am selling their sweet gifts. As in previous years, the proceeds will go to the children’s hospice Sternenbrücke.

Until now everything was sold out until the early afternoon. Early arrival ensures successful shopping!

In the entrance area of the library it will probably be a bit louder than usual on Tuesday. We ask for your understanding.

Hello Kinderforscher!

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!

However, this ideal subject repository does not exist for every research data set. There may also be important reasons against storing them outside your own institution.

Since 2019, the library has therefore provided an institutional repository for the publication of research data from the TU Hamburg:
