Whether in the library, on campus or from home the e-offers (e-books, e-journals, databases) of the university library are always available for you. We have revised our digital offerings for the year 2024 as well. We would like to inform you here about innovations and changes in this area.

We have compiled all information on the expansion of the e-book range as well as innovations and changes in licensing for you in a structured overview.

Below we would like to inform you about some of them in more detail.

DEAL Elsevier
Since 2024, Chemnitz University of Technology has been participating in the DEAL agreement with Elsevier. This provides reading access to almost the entire Elsevier journal portfolio, including the Cell Press and The Lancet titles. Furthermore, the costs for open access publications in Elsevier journals are covered by the University Library. Further information on the agreement can also be found on the University Library website.

LGBTQ+ Source
Relevant for several disciplines is the EBSCO database "LGBTQ+ Source", which has been licensed since January 2024. As the authoritative database for LGBTQ+ studies, it offers academic and popular LGBTQ+ publications in full text as well as historically important primary sources. The database also contains a special LGBTQ+ thesaurus with thousands of topic-related terms that can be used for further literature research.

AIS-e-Library
Thanks to a co-operation with the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, all TUC members have access to the AIS e-Library again this year. The AIS-e-Library is an comprehensive portal containing full texts from journals and proceedings of the Association for Information Systems (AIS). Further information on access can be found in a blog post.

CAS SciFinder-n Discovery Platform Academic
Since 2024, access to the CAS SciFinder Discovery Platform has been possible. In addition to SciFinder-n, this also contains the tools CAS Formulus and CAS Analytical Methods, which enable the search for formulations and analytical methods. Access is provided via the existing SciFinder-n interface.

We wish you a lot of pleasure in learning, researching and browsing through our new e-offers.

Due to the enormous increase in the number of new publishing offerings, it is difficult for authors to make the most suitable selection. B!SON was developed by TIB Hannover and SLUB Dresden. The tool is open, free of charge and web-based.

New: Access to DIN-VDE standards campus-wide possible

The DIN VDE standards are regulations for various areas of electrical engineering. These include, for example, power systems, power conductors and insulating materials, measuring, controlling & testing, as well as machines, converters, installation material, switchgear, consumer appliances, work equipment and information technology.

Until now, the standards of the VDE (Verband der Elektrotechnik | Elektronik | Informationstechnik e. V.) could only be offered on one computer in the library as a single-user licence. This has now changed.
