Access to library locations

To make use of several facilities of the library as well as to open the access gates, you need a valid library card. Find out what you can do with the card and how to obtain one.

Access to library computers / temporary accounts

Any UM employee can log in to the library computers but in case of providing educational activities in the library you are strongly advised to personally test your account beforehand. In case you are unable to log in, you can request access via the ICTS 

In case you will be teaching non UM students/visitors you will need to arrange temporary accounts for them. Click the button below to request an account. Note: this only works when logged in on the UM-network (e.g. via VPN). Make sure you apply for temporary accounts well in advance!


Should you or some of your students be unable to log in during the lessons, there is an emergency procedure available at the information desk or the Computer and Resources Centre desk.
