The University Library increasingly offers eBooks, which are books in electronic form one has access to throughout the campus. Downloading or printing individual paragraphs/chapters for personal use is possible under copyright law.

You find both eBooks and printed books in the catalogue – instead of the signature, the link to the full text is given. Currently, there are about 25,000 eBooks listed in the catalogue covering:

  • Books of the publishing house Beck-Verlag,
  • IEEE-Proceedings,
  • Selected reference books and series of the publishing house Springer-Verlag (e.g. Lecture Notes in Computer Science),
  • Books of Aggregators Ebrary,
  • Dissertations, which have been published in electronic form.

If you are looking for specific eBooks, you should use the function Advanced Search in the catalogue and refer to the material type Online Resources (without journals).
