The Datenbank-Infosystem (Database Information System - DBIS) is a list of all the general and subject-related databases indexing scholarly literature and licensed by the University Library, often including full texts.
Searching for relevant databases in DBIS

- Search using the subject list
- Search using the alphabetical list
Please note however that you cannot access the law databases Beck-Online and beck-eBibliothek from outside the University due to licensing restrictions.
Bibliographical databases contain references to literature on specific subjects. The majority of these databases consist of collections of bibliographical references relating to a particular academic field. Sometimes direct links to the respective full texts are included.
Should the database you are using not contain full texts, look for a button with the symbol SFX. The SFX link resolver checks whether the University Library can grant you access to the full text on the basis of one of our other licences.
In addition to bibliographical databases, the University Library has also licensed a range of databases containing factual information (for example statistical material) or journalistic content (for example newspaper archives).
