Registration for students and employees of the HSRM

You can use our e-media and databases even without a valid library card. However, if you want to borrow books and other media, you need to register in the library first. To do so, please follow these instructions:

Please complete the online registration form (including voluntary informations such as degree course and e-mail-adress) and click on the „send“ button at the bottom of the site. A new document will open that includes the data you just entered. Please safe this document on your computer and send it as an e-mail-attachement to ausleihe-hlb(at)remove-this.hs-rm.de. Your signature is not needed at this point, you‘ll need to sign the document later when you visit the library in person though.

Please include a scan/photo of your StudentCard (front and backside) OR your provisional student ID OR your certificate of enrollment to the e-mail.

We’re getting your registration ready then. When you visit the library at your place of study for the first time, please come to the circulation desk so we can un-lock your library account. Please note that this is only possible when library staff is around (Opening hours).

In case you want to borrow books on your first visit already, please check out the book numbers (Signaturen) of the respective books in our online catalogue and include them also in the e-mail you send us for registration. How you can get your books and other media for future visits – either by going to the bookshelves yourself or by ordering them beforehand – you can learn at the locations-site of your library.

A sixth renewal or a renewal after the end of the lending period is only possible by telephone or at the lending desk.
