Despite the shutdown of our branch libraries and all our staff working from home office, we are still there for you. Take advantage of our various digital services – from the First Level Hotline, to e-learning, publication and consulting services to our extensive e-media portfolio.
You can reach our First Level Hotline - as usual - Monday to Friday from 8.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. by e-mail, phone, WhatsApp, or chat.
We offer individual support in our online consultations on research strategies, literature search for students, reference management and citation as well as bibliometrics and impact. Just arrange your individual appointment.
Our teams in such areas as Subject Librarians, TUM University Press, Open Access, E-Dissertations, mediaTUM, Research Data Management, Acquisitions & Cataloguing, Public Services and Information Services are also available for you. Please contact us by e-mail.
E-books, e-journals and databases
As a TUM member you can use our extensive range of e-books, e-journals and databases from your home office. For access, you only need to authenticate yourself with your TUM ID. In most cases, this is easily done via eAccess. On some platforms there are institutional logins with Shibboleth or personal registration is required.
Recommend literature for purchase
Our media acquistion is also continuing. In the current situation, we are trying to license required titles primarily as e-media and make them online available to you. Please send us your purchase recommendation via our web form.
For the preparation of upcoming courses, we offer TUM lecturers the accustomed service. If you need literature for your course, which should be available for several participants, please send us your textbook recommendations online.
Although classroom courses are currently not possible, our e-courses and e-tutorials will help you to get fit in areas such as literature search, reference management or citation. You can find our e-courses on Moodle and learn with them on your own. If you successfully complete the respective tests, we will be happy to send you a certificate of participation.
