The availability of research facilities and a place for quiet reflection in combination with efficient access to scientific literature is fundamental to a modern university infrastructure. The MCI provides libraries and study areas with a wide selection of books, journals, magazines and newspapers at multiple locations as well as comprehensive online resources.

All MCI libraries open again; the University libraries will open step by step. We support your research, teaching and study activities as usual:

  • We offer access to an extensive digital collection of eBooks, eJournals & more from many different subject areas. If you need literature that is only available in printed form and is currently not accessible, we will try to find a free access solution or will provide scans for you.
  • All of our online resources are easily accessible from the comfort of your own home - go to the databases. We have extended this offer considerably!
  • To access the licensed online content, please follow the instructions for remote access via Shibboleth.


Contact us by phone and email - we are doing our best to fully support you. Stay healthy!
