According to the infection protection concept of JMU (as of 01.06.2022), the following applies to the use of the University Library:
- In buildings and enclosed spaces of the university, the recommendation to wear a face mask applies, especially where a distance of 1.5 m to other persons cannot be safely maintained.
- Most learning and computer workstations in the University Library may be used without prior reservation. The learning workstations in the small reading rooms of the Main Library and in individual zones of some departmental libraries remain reservable.
- In the departmental libraries ZOM | ZIM and Dental Clinic, access is still restricted to medical students, the test modalities are as currently specified by the UKW for medical students. FFP2 masks are still mandatory. At a fixed sitting or standing place, the mask may also be removed there, provided that the minimum distance is reliably maintained.
All online services are available without restrictions. We recommend that all members and students of the university primarily use our wide range of e-books, e-journals and databases.
You will find literature on bioscience in the departmental library. The entire departmental library collection can be searched via the catalogue.
The shelf marks of these items start with "550/".
The departmental library is a reference library, which means that items can usually only be used on site.
More information on further lending conditions can be found in the Guidelines on the use of departmental libraries (PDF, 187 KB). You will find a large collection of study-relevant literature available for loan in the Hubland Main Library.
A total of 65 study desks are available.
