Search: Computer Science & Medical Informatics

What do I find here?

On this page you will find:

  • databases: multidisciplinary or subject-specific databases licensed by the Trier University of Applied Sciences, which offer you full texts, literature references or facts from the fields of computer science and medical informatics.
  • journals: licensed journals in the fields of computer science and medical informatics or databases which give you access to such journals.
  • research portals: websites that bundle information resources on computer science and medical informatics and often enable meta searches via library catalogues, databases and search engines.
  • other: link collections that lead you to e.g. subject-specific search engines, free e-books or information pages.  

Important: In addition to the search tools listed here, there are multidisciplinary search options such as library catalogues, scientific search engines and academic networks.

  • Contents: Perinorm allows you, among other things

    • full-text search for DIN standards without VDE identification,

    • full-text search for DIN-EN standards,

    • search for the bibliographic data of more than two million national, European and international standards as well as technical regulations (VDI guidelines, ISO standards, etc.).

  • Guidance: Perinorm offers you, among other things, the possibility to search for a standard or guideline with the help of the document number:

    1. Open Perinorm (via campus computer or VPN).
    2. Switch to the English surface (top bar).
    3. Enter the document number, e.g. 748 for DIN 748-1 or 690 for DIN ISO 690. a) Simple search mask: Tick the box "Search in document number only" below the search line. b) Advanced search mask: Select the field "Document identifier+" for entry.
    4. Submit the search via the "Search" button.
    5. You receive a hit list. The current editions of the standards are placed at the top.
    6. If the standard you are looking for is available as full text, you will see a blue bordered document symbol with or without a country flag on the left.
    7. Click on the symbol. The full text is made available.

    Note: Please note that a document number can apply to more than one standard. For example, searching with "748" will lead you to DIN 748-1 (shaft ends) and DIN EN 748 (playing field equipment).
