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 all subject libraries and the Central Lending Library requires a daily negative corona test from an official test provider, proof of convalescence or proof of full vaccination against the coronavirus. This will not change for the time being due to the new CoronaVO as of 16 September.
The Classroom Pass is accepted at the University Library.
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.
