Due to the Bavarian infection protection measures act, the Bavarian University Libraries are completely closed until further notice. Book lending is unfortunately not allowed.

All our online-services are fully available. Please consider make use of our E-Books, E-Journals and data bases.

It is possible to return items during this time. You can use the book return boxes in front of branch libraries 3 and 4 as well as inside the ERBA-building (opening hours: Mon-Fri 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.) or you can send us items to return by mail as a parcel. No paid reminders will be issued until the loan is reopened.

You can contact us as usual by phone, e-mail or in the chat. We are doing everything we can, to offer you the best service possible.

Thank you for your understanding and we wish you all the best! Take good care of yourselves and others!
