Here you use the tab "in Ilmenau" for your search and limit the search to "online yes" as well as to the format "book".

Click on "Online access" in the title display to access the full text of the e-book.

  • worldwide from any computer.without prior installation of software components using Shibboleth (if supported by the provider) or
  • if you log into the IP address range using VPN and then access the respective title (in some cases the use of the VPN profile "def-ext-full" is required).
