Digital Library North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW)
A joint service of all university libraries of the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the HBZ (Hochschulbibliothekszentrum - Online Utility and Service Center for Academic Libraries in North Rhine-Westphalia). It provides access to a number of library catalogues and specialist databases as well as full-text documents. Those services, which are free of charge, are available to everyone. The licensed offers of the Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) can only be used if you log on via the RUB network.
From the start page of the Digital Library you can simultaneously search different catalogues and databases using a metasearch mask. You may also select one or more databases. Please note that by using the metasearch mask you will not exhaust all retrieval possibilities of individual databases. By clicking the menu items Databases and Documents (see the navigation bar on the border at the top of the screen of Digital Library), you have specific access to individual services.
If you have any questions regarding the contents or use of the Digital Library please feel free to contact either by telephone or e-mail: Georg Sander (Tel. 0234/32-22791) or Peter Peitz (Tel. 0234/32-22356).
