Registration

Registration is required if you wish to borrow media.

As university member (students, faculty, staff) you may access all digital media and make use of our scan service without prior registration. To do so, you only need to authenticate using your university account (abcd1234 plus password).

Student Registration (CampusCard)

Upon enrollment, all students receive the university's CampusCard. To use the CampusCard as library card a one-time registration is required using your university account (abcd1234 plus password). Following that, the CampusCard must be presented at the user services desk for a final validation.

Staff Registration

Library cards are issued to new staff (MTV) and faculty of the university. This requires a one-time registration.

After the registration, your library card can be picked up at the user-services counter in the library Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
