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.

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 are expected to remain closed until 7 March 2021.
The Central Lending Library is open on a limited basis for picking up pre-ordered media.
You can return media from all subject libraries to the Central Lending Library currently.
