Library Card

As a member of the University of Mannheim your ecUM serves as your library card.

Once you have your ecUM and access to your library account, you can

  • borrow items from the Schloss Westflügel Library including the textbook collection
  • use the electronic lockers in the libraries
  • print, photocopy, and scan
  • borrow items via the interlibrary loan service
  • access the library’s electronic resources - from off-campus using the VPN-Client
  • access the Internet

Replacement in case of loss or damage

In case of loss or damage of your ecUM card, please contact the information desk in the InfoCenter. Here you can ask for a new card and block your lost card. We will charge a fee of EUR 15.00 for the replacement.

You can pick up your new ecUM at the University IT’s desk in the InfoCenter from Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 12 noon and on Wednesday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
