Library Card

If you are a member of the University of Mannheim, your ecUM serves as your library card.

With your ecUM and your access information, you can

  • borrow items at the Central Lending Library Schloss Westflügel
  • print, copy and scan
  • order items via the interlibrary loan service
  • access licensed electronic resources, by using the VPN client also remotely
  • campus-wide Internet access
  • use the lockers

Replacement in case of loss or damage

Please contact the information desk in the InfoCenter if your ecUM is lost or damaged. Here you can get a new card and block your lost card. We will charge a fee of EUR 15 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 noon and on Wednesday between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

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 at the ecUM terminals and at the Student Services office.
