Do you have any questions on how to use your library card, how to search for literature or how to use other services of the library? The InfoCenter is the central service desk for information and advice. It is operated in cooperation with the University IT.

After prior registration by e-mail or phone, the InfoCenter services are available on site on a limited basis.

Here you can get the ecUM or the library card for non-university members.

Special collections reading room

The InfoCenter has a special collections reading room for items unavailable for home loan, for example, books older than 100 years. Microform scanners are available for reading, storing or printing microfilms and microfiches.

Borrowing mobile devices

Members of the University of Mannheim can reserve laptops, tablets and e-book readers via the Primo catalog and collect them from the information desk in the InfoCenter.

Opening hours

The subject libraries A3, A5, Schloss Ehrenhof and Schloss Schneckenhof are open on a limited basis. Access to the subject libraries is only possible for all user groups with a valid seat booking.

The Central Lending Library remains open for the collection of pre-ordered media and the return of media from all subject libraries.

Please inform yourself about the extended digital services.
