At the beginning of 2021, we would like to inform you about new offers and changes in the area of the digital University Library, which is always available for you. From home students and employees of the TU Chemnitz can also access our digital holdings (ebooks, ejournals, databases). All you need for this is a current URZ login and a VPN connection to the campus network.

We have compiled the new licenses and changes in the eoffers of Chemnitz University Library for you in a structured overview.

The importance of free teaching and learning materials for digital higher education

The topic of digitisation has been an important one to schools and universities in Germany for some time now. This year, however, the coronavirus pandemic meant that the topic had to be implemented as quickly and effectively as possible. Digital teaching presents us all with great challenges but offers great opportunities as well. Making teaching appealing and interactive is easier than ever with digital educational materials – and that is precisely why we depend so much on high-quality and freely available material. It is precisely this purpose that Open Educational Resources (OER) are intended for.
