HERDT publishing house and RRZN manuals
HERDT publishing house is a leading vendor in IT training and educational publications with a total number of more than 25 million copies distributed. A larger part of these materials is available in print at special conditions for many years to university members as the well-known RRZN manuals on a basis of the cooperation between the HERDT publishing house and the RRZN (Regionales Rechenzentrum für Niedersachsen / Leibniz Universität Hannover; now LUIS). In addition, many of the RRZN manuals are available as low-priced e-books for a while now In Göttingen, these e-books can be purchased at the chip card office in the ZHG of the University of Göttingen with the chip card (employees and students) as a download code. Many RRZN manuals are unaltered reprints of publications by HERDT, and many of them were available for purchase at the GWDG for years. However, the purchase of the printed RRZN manuals was discontinued due to the sharp decrease in demand on 25.07.2018.
