The topics include aspects of using information, like publishing, researching or visualising as well as issues of the (new) German intellectual property law.

A good intention: At last, starting to write

TUHH Short night of academic writing 2018

A good opportunity to realize your own intentions. 8-) Writing for your academic thesis actually starts when planning, reading and experimenting.

In addition to motivational talks as well as workshops the program of the “Short Night” (Flyer) includes the possibility of concentrated and silent active work in a special writing room. Writing consultation is offered as well as consultation on scholarly research methods, on finding subject information and on knowledge organisation through reference management! Consultation is also possible in English language!

About one third of the program items are offered in English language:

  • Short introduction to LaTeX (Alexander C. Wawrzyn) and time for questions and practice LaTeX. 4:15 pm – 5:15 pm, room NIT E07

The TUHH library has been offering a German language weblog since a few years, which accompanies a seminar course “Academic research and writing” (Description in English) as a form of showcase. Some of the lecturers from this course, which is organised by the TUHH library and which is part of the module “Nontechnical Complementary Courses for Bachelors” at TUHH, will offer some of the introductory presentations at the “Kleine Nacht”.

More ACS journals

Two years ago the tub. changed access for journals of the American Chemical Society (ACS) from print to online. This year the tub. offers access to further ACS journals within the TUHH intranet.

A journals package has been licensed, which includes more journals by paying not too much additional costs. Additional journals has been selected from those journals not accessible until now, whose „access denied“ figures has been the highest in 2017.
