Due to an order from the Bavarian State Government, the university library will not be able to offer any services on site from December 16, 2020 until further notice.
The collection of ordered books and media in the Central Library, the Central Textbook Collection and in the subject libraries, subject to strict hygiene measures, is possible again from Wednesday, January 27, 2021. All media must be ordered in advance via the online catalogue.
Most of the University Library's holdings are available for loan. You will need your LMUcard or a library card to borrow media.
Zentralbibliothek (Main Library)
The loan collections of the Zentralbibliothek (Main Library) are housed in the stacks. If you want to borrow media for off-site use you will need to search for the titles you need in the online catalogue and submit an order for them to be fetched from the stacks.
The textbooks in the Zentrale Lehrbuchsammlung (Central Textbook Collection) and in the textbook collections of the Subject Libraries are on open access. You can borrow these books immediately without ordering them first.
Lending conditions vary amongst the Subject Libraries of the University Library. You will find detailed information on loan availability in the left-hand navigation bar. You can also contact library staff on-site whenever you are in the library.
