… libraries record the metadata of their holdings in shared databases which have been built up and used in so-called library unions.
Data of this common databases run into local library systems and catalogs like tub.find at TUHH. These local databases are also used in the local database of loaned books as well as in the acquisition and ordering system of the particular library. Ordering via interlibrary loan is possible directly in the library union databases.
During March 2019 the “cataloguing databases” of two large library unions, the GBV Common Library Network and the SWB Library Network, will be merged to a common database including more than 180 million records. This database has the working title K10plus (~ “Katalog für zehn Bundesländer und mehr” = “catalog of 10 federal states and more”).
This fusion behind the scenes also has temporarily an impact on local library services here at TUHH.
From the midst of March until the productive start in the end of March, restrictions of services may occur. This is especially true for:
- Ordering of interlibrary loans via the GBV databases will not be pssoible starting March 22, 6 pm
presumably not be possible from March 15 to March 25, ordering of interlibrary loans possible again from March 26. [Corrected March 7, 2019]
- During this time acquisition proposals will not be executed as promptly as normal.
We hope for you understanding.
Other services, like loaning and information, also the function of our catalog tub.find, are hopefully not affected.

And we are happy to provide you with books, you need for your individual work or study at TUHH. So please tell us, if you are searching TUBfind and the book you are looking for is not included in the library yet:
If you like, we put a hold on the book, as soon as it is available at TUHH library.
Nice to know:
In TUBfind you can include other library holdings in your search. In case we do not own a title, additional options are shown. You may either order the book from other libraries by interlibrary loan or send us an acquisition proposal for this title.
Use the check box to search other libraries as well.
Because of maintenance works at our hosting partner GBV online interlibrary loan will not be possible and databases of GBV will not be usable 01-03-2014 during 8:00am – 4:00pm. In TUBfind you will miss the information of availability.
In TUBfind and also in Classic Catalog Interface there could be delays by searching. We apologize for any inconveniences!
When you are in need for a text you can not locate in our library, Interlibrary Loan is available via GVK-PLUS-catalog.
Unfortunately this database did not always indicate whether full text is available for TUHH. Luckily this has been changed. Starting yesterday our Volltext@TUHH button is shown when applicable.
For example check out this article from Extremophiles : life under extreme conditions. – Tokyo : Springer, 1997-.
