Please see our FAQs on using the library.
Members of the university and external users can register with the library. Students and university staff should present their Campuscard the first time they wish to borrow a book, as it also serves as your library card once that feature has been activated. Students’ library cards remain valid for the duration of their studies, after which they can be transferred to guest reader status, if desired.
External users need to present formal ID to acquire a library card, which will be valid for one year to start with, but can then be renewed indefinitely.
Usage is based on the General Regulations on the Use of Bavarian State Libraries (ABOB), as posted at the entrance to the library.
Users can reserve a work that is currently on loan to someone else. You can also reserve works yourself in the University Library Catalogue using either the OPAC terminal or an external PC.<br/> <br/> The library cannot disclose the name of the user who currently has the work on loan on data protection grounds.
For the most part, using the library’s services is free of charge.
