Pick-up Authorization

Full-time academic staff members of the University of Mannheim can issue a pick-up authorization for their library account. With the pick-up authorization, you can authorize third parties to borrow items using your library account.

You have to collect the pick-up authorization in person at the InfoCenter. Please also bring your ecUM. In order to borrow items, the pick-up authorization needs to be presented.

The pick-up authorization does not include access to your library account. If you would like to grant a third person access to your library account, you have to request an additional ID for your library account.

Access to your Library Account

As a chair holder you can request an additional ID solely granting access to your library account. Your staff members can use it to borrow, request, renew and place holds on items via your library account.

You can request this additional UL-ID for your library account at the service desk of the University IT in the InfoCenter.
