Terms in DBIS

TOP-Datenbanken

Databases that are particularly important for users at the university are marked as “TOP Datenbanken”. These titles are then displayed separately from the other databases at the beginning of each subject list. Below this, the total number of databases in this subject is listed, with the top databases listed again.

CD-ROM-Databases

The university library also offers access to a large number of CD-ROM databases in all subject areas via the Database Information System (DBIS). In most cases, access to the databases is available via the university’s network or locally on an individual workstation at the various locations of the university library. However, a few CD-ROMs are not installed locally or in the network and can be loaned via the catalogue.

You can limit your database selection to CD-ROM databases by selecting the database type “CD-ROM/DVD-ROM” in the Advanced Search.

HAN-Server

The Hidden Automatic Navigator is used by institutions such as libraries to manage licences and grant their users access to the licensed resources from outside the library

NetMan

NetMan is a management software that allows different resources in the network (Local Area Network, Intranet or Internet) to be managed centrally and made available to users by integrating these resources into a common user interface.
