Saving documents from the Internet on a USB stick

At the computer workstations in the University Library you can save files from a large number of applications on a USB stick.


Select the document

On the start page, which is displayed on the workstations in the University Library, select the "Internetzugang" (Internet access) link and log on with your user card number and your password.

Only via this form of access and via the services of the University Library are you recognised as a user of the University Library by suppliers of licenced electronic journals and databases. In addition it is only via this access that you can use the print functions, but not via the "catalogues" link or via your laptop in the University's WLAN.

Now select the desired document from the range on offer at the University Library. You can find electronic journals and literature databases with links to full texts via the online catalogue of the University Library or via the links shown under Online resources or Elektronische Medien (Electronic media; in German).


Save the document on a USB stick

For PDF documents please use the Adobe-Reader function "Kopie speichern unter" (save copy as). Select a name of your own choice and save the file on the “B:” drive. Other  types of documents can be saved on the “B:” drive directly via the context menu (right mouse click: “Seite speichern unter”/“Grafik speichern unter” [save page as/save image as]).

Please end the browser session. A pop-up will then appear from which you can copy files onto your USB stick .

After connecting the USB stick please wait until the programme has recognised the stick and gives a corresponding message. You can now select the files and transfer them to the USB stick by clicking "ok". After copying, the message "Kopiervorgang beendet" (copying process finished) will appear. Only then should the stick be removed from the machine.
Please note: Some USB sticks are not recognised by the computer!

If you would like to save other documents onto a USB stick, please keep the "NetMan" application open. You can move between this application and the Internet browser or Adobe Reader by using the key combination "Alt + Tab".

The saved files can be deleted via the "Exportdateien löschen" (delete export files) function.
