Departmental Library for Psychology


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.

In the departmental library, you will find specialist literature on psychology. The entire departmental library collection can be searched via the catalogue.

The shelf marks of these items start with "514/".
