Our E-books

E-book Publications offered by Dortmund University Library

  • You can search the contents of e-books using the full-text search. This is especially helpful for quick searches for facts. You can save single chapters only for personal use, observing the copyright.
  • As a rule, our e-books can be found in catalogue plus. Exceptions are marked with "no records in catalogue plus".
  • E-books licenced nationally by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) (and provided by Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Munich) can be accessed within Germany. Residents of the Federal Republic of Germany can register for access free of charge, should they do not have access via any academic library (except Elsevier e-books).
  • In addition to e-book packages we have licenced single titles from different publishers: dictionaries, encyclopaedias and reference books.
