As part of the DEAL negotiations, universities in Baden-Württemberg cancelled the consortium agreement with the publisher Elsevier at the end of 2017. In order to ensure an adequate supply of Elsevier articles, the HFU libraries have set up a central article delivery service for university staff and students.
Orders for articles which are not available in the HFU libraries can be placed using the Elsevier articles order form. The HFU libraries will ensure speedy processing of the order. The article delivery service through interlibrary loan is free of charge for university staff and students. Please consult the library in advance regarding delivery services which are not free of charge.
