Library Card for Students and Staff Members of Cooperating Institutions

If you are a student or staff member of a higher education institution which has signed a cooperation agreement with the University of Mannheim, you can request an ecUM, which serves as your library card, at the InfoCenter free of charge.

Cooperating Institutions

Once you have your ecUM and access to your library account (username and password), you can

  • borrow items from the Schloss Westflügel Library
  • 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 on-campus (no access from off-campus using the VPN client)
  • connect to the Internet throughout campus using the university wireless network or using a library computer

How can I apply?

  • Complete, save, and print the Application Form. Staff members of cooperating institutions must have their application form signed and stamped by their employer.
  • Submit your application form in person at the InfoCenter and bring a valid ID card or passport with a citizen's registration certificate. Students of cooperating institutions must bring their student ID card as well.
  • You can pick up your ecUM after two days at the most.

How Do I Receive Notifications?

  • All notifications such as holds or final notices are sent to your university e-mail address.
  • You can change your address in person only at the InfoCenter. Please note that you need to bring a valid ID card or a passport with a citizen's registration certificate in order to change your address.
