Pick-up Authorization

As academic staff member of the University of Mannheim, you can issue a pick-up authorization for your library account.

The pick-up authorization authorizes other people to borrow items on your behalf. Please pick-up the authorization form in person at the InfoCenter and present your ecUM. If other people want to borrow items on your behalf, they need to present the pick-up authorization in the original.

The pick-up authorization is not intended for accessing the library account of the person issuing the authorization. If you want to authorize others to access your library account, please apply for an additional ID.

University Library ID

Chair holders can apply for an additional University Library ID authorizing others to access their library account only. You may forward this ID to your staff members so that they can order or renew items or place them on hold on your behalf.

Please contact the University IT in the InfoCenter if you require an additional ID.
