University Library

The University Library provides the information and research infrastructure for teaching, learning and research activities at the University of Mannheim, offering both analog and digital media.

For access to all subject libraries and the Central Lending Library, the 3G rule applies.

The Classroom Pass can be used as proof of entry to the university library. By approving the request for your 3G status on the check-in page, you will be able to check in directly to the subject libraries in the future without a proof check.

Access to the subject libraries is possible for all user groups with the personal ecUM or UB chip card. Guest students, members of cooperating institutions and users with a library card require a valid seat booking.
