Databases contain a mostly thematically oriented selection of journals, e-books, standards, company information, statistics and many other types of information. In order to get an overview of the licensed databases of the University Library, you can find two different compilations here.

Database information system DBIS

All databases (including databases that are available for free) can be researched over DBIS. This website shows content in english and german and you can switch between languages.

You can use DBIS or use our website, where we show licensed databases only.

Access via VPN

To enable the access from home to a database service of the university library, some database providers guarantee access to their database via VPN. VPN creates an encrypted connection (via IPSec) between the dial-in point (e. g. the home network) and the HTW-Berlin network, which guarantees a secure data transport.
The data center provides you a VPN client that you can install on your computer and gives a detailled instruction  how to install and log in to it.
