The HZB library and its services

The HZB's scientific special library procures the required literature - as a loan or by purchase, electronically or on paper, from its own inventory or through interlibrary loan, and also at your workplace in the web browser via direct links on the provider pages.

Nature Complete

From now on, all journals of the former Nature Publishing Group (now Springer Nature) are available for reading as part of the Nature Complete programme at HZB. Examples: Eye, Nature Energy, Scientific American. This is a first result of the DEAL project.

RSC Read & Publish Gold Open Access

All publications with HZB corresponding authors in RSC journals from 2018 onwards can be published as Gold Open Access with the CC BY license at no additional cost.

Ways to reach us personally

The library staff are available during normal working hours (preferably by e-mail or by telephone).

Interlibrary loans and media can be picked up every work day from Mrs. Friedrich (DV 202) or Mrs. Thunert (DV 203).
