LMUcard for students replaces white library reader pass

Most students of the LMU have already obtained their personal LMUcard. The LMUcard replaces the white library reader pass valid so far, since the library function – also for the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek – has been integrated in the LMUcard. Please note that the white reader passes starting with the numbers 31 to 39 will become invalid as of 30 September 2019.

We recommend to all students who do not yet have an LMUcard and who continue studying at the LMU in the winter term 2019/ 20 to apply for the LMUcard online as soon as possible.

The white reader passes used so far will become invalid for students of the LMU as of the end of term on 30 September 2019 (reader pass numbers 31xxx to 39xxx). Please note that your library account will be locked as of 1 October 2019, if you don’t have applied for and collected an LMUcard with integrated library function by this time.

In addition, we would like to point out that a separate copy card is required for the scanners, copiers and printers at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek. In contrast to the LMU, the function for using these devices at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek is not integrated in the LMUcard.
