The long journey of women into the world of science.
Our action shelf in the entrance area of the library is newly filled with a lot of “femininity”.
Borrowing expressly requested by all users!
Our selection is available also in Library Thing.
Access is now possible within the TUHH to online books from MIT Press with the years 2015 until 2018 via the platform IEEE Xplore. Further titles from the areas computer sciences, engineering and media (time range from 1943 to 2014) have been available since the beginning of the year 2015.
MIT Press, affiliated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is one of the well-respected university presses in the United States. Its focus often refeered to engineering content of long-lasting quality, which also reflects sociocultural developments in technology.
Below you find a selection of newly available online books from MIT Press. In the moment the works are not included in the catalog tub.find and can only be found via IEEE Xplore.

As wrap-up to the TUHH program for the Open Access Week 2018 the library invites to a tub.talk on December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm.
- Of green roads and DEALs!
What can we do for Open Access?
Thursday, December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm
Room 0.004, the large group room behind the information desk of the tub.
The opening of the week on October 22 started with a TUHH press release (in German) and the publication of the openTUHH Policy. A Poster Walk in the rotund of the TUHH library handled challenges within Open Access.
Views into the backstages of the library and the TUHH computer center as well as film perfomances made the OA week perfect.
Every day of the Open Access Week a blog entry was published, not every entry also in English language. In connection to the motto of the week “Design Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge” the following topics have been addressed:
- How open the TUHH presents itself, together with posters of the tub.
- How a fund for publication supports your Open Access publishing!!
- Considering challenges between quality and Open Access! (in German)
- What does Open Science do for the TUHH!
- Which project does the TUHH library make within the Hamburg Open Online University ((HOOU)! (in German)
- How to train Open Science! (in German)
- Why Open Access can be seen as moral economy and boundary project! (in German)
The TUHH library wants to get into a conservation with you about the status of openness in research and teaching under the motto “Of green roads and DEALs! What can we do for Open Access?”
- Which connection exists between Open Access and the Project DEAL about nation-wide agreements for licensing e-journals?
- What does openness means for you and your research and teaching?
- Which aspect of openness is especially important for you?
- Which limits do you see for openness?
You are invited to attend the tub.talk on December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm (until about 2 pm in maximum) in room 0.004, the large group room behind the information desk of the tub. .
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.
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:
20-11-2018, 04-12-2018, 18-12-2018, always Tuesdays from 4:00pm – 5:30pm, and Thursday, 10-01-2018, from 9:30am – 11:00am.
It goes without saying that during the guided tour in the lower reading room it is not always so quiet – therefore thank you for your understanding!
- TUHH has joined the contract of the DEAL project with Wiley Publishing House. You can find some information about the conditions here.
- On January 15, 2019, for the project Deal a contract has been signed with the publisher Wiley. The contract now has been published.
- TUHH no longer has access to the complete range of journals published by Elsevier-Verlag. Periodicals for which the TUHH has archive rights are still available.
- There is a transitional agreement with SpringerNature, so that the journals available at TUHH will remain accessible in 2019. Negotiations with Wiley will continue, but Wiley’s journals will be available until the end of January 2019.
- Springer journals will continue to be available during negotiations in 2019.
- The TUHH has cancelled all journal subcriptions with the publishers Elsevier, Springer und Wiley to the end of 2018. The TUHH takes part at the project DEAL.
With the project DEAL the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) is negotiating on behalf of the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany with the big STEM publishers (Elsevier, SpringerNature und Wiley) about nation-wide agreements for licensing e-journals. The aims of DEAL are:
- Fair financial burden to get a wide-scale, lasting access to scholarly literature (e-journals) for academics in Germany.
- As open access component, corresponding authors’ publications of participitating institutions should be Open Access automatically (CC-BY).
- To bring about significant change to the status quo in relation to negotiations, content and pricing in the process of accessing scholarly information in Germany.
What does DEAL mean actually for the TUHH?
- The TUHH has cancelled this year all journal subcriptions with the publishers Elsevier, Springer und Wiley to the end of 2018. The TUHH takes part at the project DEAL.
- The situation at TUHH will be the same like at all other German universities which cancelled their subscriptions last year or the year before. The list of these institutions includes for example other universities of technology like those in Aix-La-Chapelle, Berlin, Braunschweig, Darmstadt, Kaiserslautern, Karlsruhe and Munich. In 2018 the TUHH has still had a regular contract with Elsevier because of a three-years-agreement starting 2016.
- The status of the DEAL negotiations is open. Contracts with the publishers SpringerNature and Wiley seem to be more possible than a contract with the publisher Elsevier.
What does DEAL mean for the access to e-journals at TUHH in 2019?
- Starting 2019 the TUHH will still have access to journals, for which the TUHH had subscriptions with permanent archival rights, until including the volumes of the year 2018.For the publisher Elsevier as example this means:
- Via ScienceDirect acccess will still be possible to the most important 48 journals, for which the TUHH has had a subscription until the year 2018.
- No access will exist for articles of the year 2019.
- No access will be possible to other ScienceDirect journals. Here the access for 2018 has been paid by an annual license without permanent access rights.
- Further on you also have access to the Elsevier Journal Backfiles on ScienceDirect 1907 – 2002, a package, which was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as national license for Germany years ago.
- For getting articles not available in digital or printed form at the TUHH, you have – as in the moment also – in 2019 the following possibilities:
- Ordering through interlibrary loan online: In the moment you get a paper copy normally within one week. In the future, maybe it will be possible in most cases to deliver a digital copy to end-users.
- Ordering through other document delivery services: In case you need an article within 24 hours or within 3 working days, the TUHH library will order the articles for TUHH researchers through another delivery service, for which the library will also pay for. This is possible already today on request.
- In general, document delivery is possible via various ways of acquisition, which differ in the speed of supply (from at once to several days), in the quality of supply (from original pdf file to paper copy) and in the fees to be paid (to about 75 € for the most expensive type of document delivery).
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!
We would be happy to know where the books are going.
