The Library

 


The library of Munich University of Applied Sciences holds selected collections of printed and electronic media, which meets mainly the needs of the university members. Of course, the library is also open to the general public.


 


The library's collections


We provide more than 300,000 printed books and 700 current print journals, most in direct open-shelf access. Moreover, we offer access to a wide range of licensed e-books, e-journals and standards. To provide full-text access to journal articles and conference papers, the Library subscribes to a range of databases, that are available within the campus network of Munich University of Applied Sciences.


All printed items and e-books are recorded in our Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) . Many self-service functions, such as using the OPAC's user account display, priority notices and loan renewal are reserved to registered users. The privilege to use electronic resources outside the campus network is intended to university members only.


In case our own collections do not meet your demands, you can use our interlibrary loan system via the Bavarian Library Network (Gateway Bayern) . This networks offers access to the collections of all scientific libraries in the states Bavaria, Berlin and Brandenburg.
