Electronic Resources: Changes in 2019

Doris Skaric & Lothar Nunnenmacher

After some distinct adaptations with new resources but also with cancellations in the last years we saw only minor changes in our portfolio in this year.


  • Brill: We successfully negotiated a 1-year-trial to the complete Brill E-Journals collection. Brill is a well-known publisher for humanities, but has also a collection of biology journals.
  • Elsevier: The journal Structure (Cell Press) was subscribed.
  • ISPG: After the International Scholarly Publication Group disappeared from business in 2018, we ensured access to the most used journals via direct licenses.
  • all journals from the International Water Association (IWA)
  • the Journal of Nuclear Medicine and the Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology        from the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).
  • Mary Ann Liebert: After our trial to three journal collections in 2017 we now can offer a year-long trial for all 90+ journals from the publisher Mary Ann Liebert.
  • Nature: We licensed Nature Sustainability and Nature Catalysis, both launched in 2018.
  • Oxford University Press: The upgrade from the Full collection 2018 to the Full Collection 2019 includes 17 new journals.
  • Royal Society of Chemistry: We added the New Titles Package 2019 with the journals “Material Chemistry Frontiers” and “Sustainable Energy & Fuels” to our selection.
  • Taylor and Francis: Purchase of the archives of 15 journals within the Pharmaceutical Science and Toxicology collection.
  • Wiley: We expanded our backfiles collection by 26 journals, mainly from the subject areas chemistry and biology.

Reference Works:


  • We set up a year-long trial to the Forestry Compendium and the Forest Science database from the Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International (CABI).
  • We had to cancel “MathSciNet” due to low user interest over the past few years.
