You can use the library's online catalogue (OPAC) to search the collection of titles held in the Central Library and departmental libraries and to make reservations, place orders and request renewals. You can view your borrowed items and the loan periods for each at any time by clicking on "Account".
You can also search the Bavarian Library Union (Bibliotheksverbund Bayern) and request inter-library loans by clicking on the "Database selection" button.
Please select the relevant view according to library location (the entire collection is always searched but results from the selected library branch are displayed first. You can then place orders between Weihenstephan and Triesdorf libraries).
In your browser window, OPAC is also referred to as Touchpoint (manufacturer’s name for the research system).
Please also note the detailed Help topics provided in OPAC or this guide (pdf, German).
All databases licensed by HSWT can be found in the DBIS, as well as a large selection of free databases on a variety of topics.
