Departmental Library for Business Management and Economics (TBW)


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 business management and economics. The entire departmental library collection can be searched via the catalogue.

The shelf marks of these items start with "800/".

From 04.04.2022: Use of workstations without reservation, but with distance

As of Wednesday, 04.04.2022, the workplaces of the Departmental Library for Business Management and Economics may be used without prior reservation. Spacing rules still apply, so please only use the tables where there are also chairs.


Wearing an FFP2 mask inside the library is mandatory

The mask may be removed while sitting at a learning workplace.


Electronic lending in the departmental library as of 25.04.2022

Goodbye paper lending slip: from 25.04.2022 the departmental library will start electronic lending via RFID technology. In the run-up to this, over 50,000 media were linked to the University Library's lending system and the technical infrastructure was adapted. On 25 April, the departmental library will also adopt the lending conditions  and loan periods of the Main Library. This means that the media of the departmental library can also be borrowed regularly by students.

The new technology has many advantages:

  • When searching the catalogue, it is finally visible whether (and for how long) the books of the departmental library are borrowed or not (set the branch correctly in the search form!).
  • Borrowed books can be reserved via the catalogue (here, too, the branch TB Wirtschaft must be set).
  • Books are entered in the library account - the loan periods can be viewed by the borrower at any time.
  • Borrowers can renew books independently via their account.
  • If an e-mail address is entered in the account, we will send an e-mail reminder of the end of the loan period.


Current usage options

The departmental library is open to all users for on-site learning, borrowing/returning media and copying/scanning.

Important information

  • Persons showing symptoms indicative of COVID-19 disease such as cough, cold, sore throat, fever (≥ 38.0°C), loss of smell and taste are excluded from entering the library.
  • Please wear an FFP2 mask in the building. Inside the library and at the copiers/scanners, wearing an FFP2 mask is mandatory.
  • At the workstations, the mask can be removed. Please only use the places where there are chairs so that a distance of 1.50 m is ensured.
  • Please keep a sufficient distance to other persons, outside and inside the library.
  • The copier / printer / scanner in the basement is available.
