Departmental Library for Mathematics


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.

In the departmental library, you will find specialist literature on mathematics. The departmental library also has a large collection of mathematical textbooks and literature on the didactics of computer science.

The entire departmental library collection can be searched via the catalogue. The shelf marks of these items start with "700/".

Against the background of the spread of the coronavirus, the Würzburg University Library has implemented the requirements of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts to restrict public access and services. We ask for your understanding for these measures in view of the current exceptional situation.

The departmental library is open for loan and for the use of learning workplaces.

For literature supply, the departmental library is open on a limited basis for lending of media and for the use of learning workplaces Mon - Fri 9:00 - 18:00.

The library offers 49 learning workplaces. Use is limited to one person per learning workplace.
