Journals and periodicals

Printed and electronic journals can be found in our library catalog. You can search by the title of the journal (e.g. "Automobiltechnische Zeitschrift") and partly also by individual articles or topics. Our licensed databases offer a more exact search at article level. 

The library catalog offers a targeted search for journals. Select the following settings in the hit list: Improve my results → Type of resource "journals" "or if necessary "articles" AND Show only → "Current at location" (for printed journals) OR "Online resources" (for electronic journals)

Journal holdings of the university library

In the reading room you will find the last two volumes in alphabetical order for use in the library. Older journals can be found in the magazine and can be ordered at the lending desk without waiting time. The Z number found in the library catalogue is important for this, please note it down and present it at the counter. Bound journals can be borrowed for 14 days.

In the library catalog you can recognise printed journals in the hit list by the following information:

  •     Available in Central Library Reading Room Zxxxx or
  •     Available in central library magazine Zxxxx.

Electronic journals licensed by the library (e-journals) can be searched in full text. They are available on the HTW campus and can also be used externally by university members via the VPN client. In the search results of the library catalogue, the electronic journals or journal articles can be identified by the following information:

  •     Online access to the HTW campus network

Are you looking for journals for a specific subject? Then we recommend the EZB or ZDB.

Database listing electronically available scientific full-text journals. A search is possible e.g. by journal title (but not by individual articles!).
If the EZB does not show any results/access, it is worth taking a look at the ZDB.

The world's largest database for journals, newspapers and other periodical publications, lists printed + electronic journal titles.
Tip: Search by ISSN or beginning of title, place title in quotation marks.
Individual articles from non-existent journals can be ordered via interlibrary loan.
