Writing till the night …

Kleine Nacht des wissenschaftlichen Schreibens

The first “Kleine Nacht des wissenschaftlichen Schreibens” (Little or Short Night of academic writing) will take place at TUHH in the foyer and rooms around Audimax 1 on Wednesday May 7, 2014 from 3 pm to 10 pm.

The “Kleine Nacht” include stimulation and animation around academic writing and research methods for students and lecturers. It is organized by the TUHH Student Counseling Center in cooperation with the students’ union executive committee AStA, the TUHH library, the Center for Teaching and Learning (ZLL), University Sports, and the TU Computing Centre as well as several internal and external contributors.


Concentrated and silent active work is possible in special writing rooms. The program (flyer with program) includes motivational talks (in German language only!) as well as workshops. 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!

Application for the “Kleinen Nacht” is possible through the learning management system Stud.IP. But you are also welcome without registration.

TUBfind – simply more

Integration of further data now improves searching the literature via TUBfind appreciably. You clearly find more journal articles at present.

TUBfind Recherche: mathematics kreyszig

Therefore your hits appear in two categories: “Books and more” and “Articles and more”. This separation makes surveying the list of results easier.

Are you a student and looking for textbooks? In this case “Books and more” is the right choice.

Or are you interested in current research? Please choose “Articles and more”.

The advanced and modified TUBfind is offered to present the digital and printed resources of the TUHH library more reliably and still more easily. Please leave your feedback and comments here.

Access to upper reading room

Fahrstuhl-AusfallMurphy at work :-(

The stairway to the upper reading room is closed this week because of carpeting works. Unfortunately our elevator between levels has more or less stopped working. Please follow the signs for a detour via the office stairway.

Unfortunately the upper reading room can therefore only be opened between 9 am and 6.45 pm.

The stairs should be open again by the end of the week.

A lot of online books are available within the TUHH intranet. Here is a selected collection of chemical textbooks and introductions into chemistry:
