Berlin International already possesses a growing materials collection. Plans for the in-house Materials Library include:
Do you want to recommend a title for acquisition?
There are different ways to do that:
- sending an e-mail to the library;
- using the form at the end of this page;
- using the Purchase suggestions option in our new Koha OPAC (which is currently in development).
In any case, please give us as much details as possible, especially:
- ISBN / ISSN,
- author's / editor's name,
- year of publication or edition number.
The more details you give us, the easier it will be for us to locate and acquire the book.
In this , you will find National Licenses for electronic resources funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft - DFG) and acquired by our library.
As a rule, the respective databases can be accessed on campus only. Note, however, that an individual registration (text in German only) is also possible.
If you are looking for full texts on the web, you can use several multidisciplinary search interfaces.
- academic search engines,
- academic databases for books & journals,
- academic databases for theses & dissertations,
- cooperative search interfaces for digitized items from libraries, archives and museums.
If you only need bibliographic information – for instance, because you just want to import titles into
your Reference Manager (RM) –, you might want to search in Union, State or National Libraries catalogues.
If you are not able to find a publication in our library, in a library near you or on the web, you can use the following services:
- Document Delivery Services (DDS)
- Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
- Digitization on Demand (DoD).
Note, however, that most of these services are not free of charge.
