Digital Semester Apparatus order form

To support online teaching, the ULB offers teachers at MLU to supply titles only available in print for digital semester apparatus according to §60a UrhG   . This may be used by teachers at MLU using Stud.IP for their seminars.  If student assistants are tasked with the order, they need to use the mail address of the teacher. Due to staff reasons, the library cannot check proxy authority for students. Orders from student mail addresses are not worked.Please check carefully if the title is available in electronic form before ordering. Licensing for the MLU may be possible. The ULB's subject specialists are here to help you.If the title is already licensed for the MLU, you should supply the link in the digital semester apparatus. Students will receive full access to the title, instead of only the 15% allowed for electronic semester apparatus otherwise.A short overview on legally allowed options:
