Closure of the Chemistry Divisional Library from 1 April 2016 on

The swap from physical to digital resources in the past two decades has provoked a significant fall in users of the Chemistry Divisional Library (BBC). Against the backdrop of these developments and the refurbishment of the faculty’s building the faculty of chemistry and the SUB Göttingen have decided to establish a primary supply in e-resources. Therefore the BBC has been closed from the 1 April 2016 on.

The basic textbooks of chemistry have been transferred to the Physical Divisional Library (BBP) right on the other side of the street. (Opening hours: Monday to Friday 9:00 – 19:00 and Saturday to Sunday 10:00 – 16:00) The other holdings of the BBC can be ordered online from the stockroom of the central building and will be delivered to the BBP’s desk for pickup. Single- and group carrels will still be available in the faculty of chemistry’s building.

Inside the University Göttingen’s on-campus-network the licensed media (E-Journals, E-books, databases etc.) is freely accessible. Outside of the campus-network, e.g. on private PCs, the service is available for members of the University Göttingen by the authentications-server HAN.
