When embarking on research we recommend Katalog.Plus of the University Library. This catalogue comprises three databases and enables a synchronous search in the University Library catalogue, an article database and in BASE, a database for research documents on the internet.
The University Library has created departmental webpages for most of the disciplines. On these pages you find information about your departmental library, training courses and have access to the databases relevant to your subject area. The literature which is referenced in the databases can partially be retrieved as a full text. If this is not the case either the location of the newspaper or book in the library catalogue can be determined or the reading matter may be ordered from other libraries via interlibrary loan.
Even when not on campus, University members have access through a VPN connection to most of the licensed departmental databases and full texts. Information and downloads can be found here.
