University members have access, beyond the usual German- and English-language subject packages, to all German-language Springer-e-books published in 2021.
For the first time in 2022, the University Library has licensed the “Erziehungswissenschaften und Soziale Arbeit” and “History” packages in addition to the familiar collections. In 2023, the “Professional and Applied Computing” and “Synthesis Collection of Technology” packages have been added.
Cambridge University Press
All Cambridge University Press textbooks and Cambridge University Press Companions to Literature & Classics remain accessible to members of the University of Mannheim.
Mohr Siebeck for Law
Members of the University have access to all Mohr Siebeck e-books from the subject area of Law.
Members of the University of Mannheim may still access the juris database from off-campus in 2023. This means you can search for case law and journal articles and have remote access to numerous full texts – such as handbooks and commentaries, including the “Staudinger”. Members of the University also have access to the textbooks from the supplemental module on Law Studies. For remote access, you need the VPN client.
Students of cooperating institutions and non-university members holding a library card can access juris at the library’s computers.
