at NORDAKADEMIE Campus Elmshorn

Our Bachelor students can borrow current specialist literature from the Elmshorn library. Online they have comprehensive access to subject databases with articles from renowned journals, studies, statistics and legal texts, to numerous e-books and to scientific open access portals. These e-resources can be used via the NORDAKADEMIE intranet or from outside via password-protected access.

The library team offers online training courses on literature research, digital resources, citation skills, methods and literature management programs, among other things. Our students can also schedule a personal "Book a Librarian" appointment to discuss specific concerns.

Further tips on research, journal rankings, open access portals and dealing with scientific sources can be found on the library website on the NORDAKADEMIE intranet.
