Profile

The University Library of the Bundeswehr University Munich has an annual base budget of € 1.6 million and manages a total of approx.
1.3 million media units (printed media, microforms, maps, electronic and audiovisual media), including over 30,000 titles as electronic full-text journals, approx. 200 licenced bibliographic and factual databases and approx. 120,000 permanently licenced ebooks as well as numerous temporarily available ones.

The University Library provides information services for all sectors of the Bundeswehr University Munich, supporting above all its students, academic teachers and researchers. Particular emphasis is placed on personal assistance (e.g. with the "Book a Librarian" service).

The University Library participates in the Bavarian Library Network (BVB) and is open to the public (see the library regulations).
2017 was the year of the transfer into the Central Campus Library: a new building equipped with the latest in library technology, in which media loan and return is possible via self-service stations. About half of the University Library’s collections are presented on open shelves in this new building. It features 300 attractive study and work spaces as well as 8 team work rooms, and copying and scanning facilities on all floors. At the same time, the extensive special collections (e.g. on military history and military and security policy) of the former “Wehrbereichsbibliothek VI”, as well as diverse maps, have also been placed on open shelves in a newly created library section. The remaining holdings are stored in a directly adjacent building with closed stacks.
