University Library

Offers from publishers

In light of the current situation, many publishers have agreed to make some of their online services available free of charge for a limited period of time. This means that many more titles are available to you in addition to the e-books and e-journals listed in our catalogue.

You can find a centralized listing of these offers on the page "bibs vs. virus", where the products can be sorted according to subjects:

This new platform is cooperatively maintained and regularly updated by libraries from German-speaking countries.
Those marked with "frei im Web" can also be used from outside the Tübingen University network.
Those marked with the note "erweitertes Angebot bei vorhandener Lizenz" (extended offer together with existing licence) can only be accessed from the university network (incl. VPN) or via Shibboleth.

Offers which are restricted to the campus network are usually only activated upon request by the library. The following is a list of products we have already successfully applied for.
If you should come across a free publisher's offer that is not yet available, please contact us by email ( ). We will then contact the publisher.
