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.
Access to the subject libraries is possible for all user groups with the personal ecUM or UB chip card. Users from cooperating institutions and individuals require a valid seat booking. A coronatest is no longer required for access to the subject libraries A3, A5, Schloss Ehrenhof and Schloss Schneckenhof.
The Central Lending Library will remain open for self pickup and for the return of items from all subject libraries. The shelf areas are accessible. It is no longer necessary to pre-order media via Click&Collect.
