Since the beginning of the year 2104 the important journal “Nature : the international weekly journal of science” is available in the TUHH intranet also with its actual issues. Until now the TUHH libray has subscribed to the printed version which has been cancelled.
The sister journals “Nature Biotechnology” and “Nature Photonics” can be accessed to get actual full texts also.
Since last year the TUHH library has offered some actual handbooks as online versions:
Such handbooks are like compendia concise, yet comprehensive compilations of a body of knowledge. As a treatise on a special subject, today they contain a collection of articles covering the topic comprehensively.
In chemistry, multi-volume systematically arranged collections of monographs have been also called handbook, e.g. the “Gmelin’s handbook on inorganic chemistry“, which you can still find in the upper reading room as printed volumes. This reference work is a rich source for inorganic substance property data.
The TUHH library will use the time of the christmas closing to let the upper reading room to be partially plastered and to be cleaned afterwards. Because of this, the upper reading room will be closed from Friday, December 20, 2013, until probably Thursday, January 9, 2014.
Access to the CIP-Pool working places in Room 1005 as well as to the group work rooms won’t be possible in this time. In case of rapid work progress the upper reading room will be opened again earlier.
In case you want to lend or read a medium of the upper reading room, you have to order it via the catalog. Books ordered during the service hours (Mon to Thu 9 am – 7 pm and Fri 9 am – 6 pm) – but think of the Christmas closing – can be picked up half an hour later like the orders from the closed stacks. Books ordered after that time, will be available at 9.30 am on the next opening day (except for Saturdays) and can be picked up at the circulation desk.
We apologize for any inconvenience!
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-.
Due to Maintenance Work the CIP-Pool working places in Room 1005 upstairs will remain closed between 8 am and 2 pm. The four places in Reading Room II will remain usable for you. We apologize for any inconveniences.
The University Library of TUHH will remain closed from 20-12-2013, 6 p.m., until (including) 01-01-2014. From 02-01-2014 on we will offer our services again!
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Starting April 2013 the TUHH library has offered a fund to support proportionately the publication of articles in Open Access journals according to the criteria of the DFG. In 2014 additional funds are available from the German Research Foundation (DFG) out of its funding programme “Open Access Publishing”. Because of this, in the year 2014 articles in open access journals can be funded completely. This is valid for Open Access publications with 2014 as publication date.
The funding occurs through the TUB according to the criteria of the DFG on the principle: First come – First serve. In case the DFG resources will have utilized within the scope of this fund, then 25% of the publication costs, but maximum 500,- EUR per article, are taken over by the TUHH library.
