At its cabinet meeting on 6 January, the Bavarian state government decided to extend the lockdown and deepen contact restrictions beyond 10 January 2021. On Friday, the Bavarian State Parliament approved amendments to the 11th Infection Protection Measures Ordinance in a special session.
As a result, our branch libraries remain closed until further notice. The current regulations are in effect until 31 January 2021, subject to further current developments.
This means currently:
- Study Desks
Our reading rooms will be closed from 16 December 2020 until further notice. Study desks are currently not available.
Ordering books via OPAC is possible during the lockdown. You can pick up your pre-ordered media from the branch library of your choice as of 1 February 2021, provided that the lockdown will not be extended further. For urgently needed literature, we offer TUM members a shipping service within Germany.
It is not possible to return borrowed items in the branch libraries during the lockdown. Media reclaims are suspended for this period. However, you are welcome to return books by mail.
We offer TUM members more than 170,000 e-books, 72,000 e-journals and 2,300 databases. Please make use of this offer with priority.
- Document delivery
TUM members can use our scanning service dokumenTUM for journal articles and book chapters (max. 10 percent) as usual.
Our first level hotline is available during the lockdown and will be happy to help you with any questions.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Protecting everyone's health is our absolute priority.
