EBSCO Discovery Service

EDS is a scientific meta search engine. It provides access to a very large number of information resources with just one search. The discovery system offers a modern approach to searching, which makes it much easier to find literature on your topic. Here you will find direct access to a large number of licensed databases, eJournals, eBooks and open access offerings.

Enter a search term:

Within the university's network, you have full-text access to journals along with access to leading subject indexes. When accessing externally, the search redirects to guest access, and only license-free content is displayed.

Services and Usage

The University Library of Mainz University of Applied Sciences offers all the usual services of a scientific library: provision and documentation of its collections, information services, lending, interlibrary loan, training courses. We endeavour to provide all services as comprehensively as possible. Please contact us if you feel something is missing. We are always grateful for suggestions and criticism.

The library is free of charge, with the exception of interlibrary loan.

The collections are systematically set-up on a freehand basis.
The location libraries use their own installation systems that are not compatible. Although the "V Geoinformatics and Surveying" collection has been transferred to the Campus site, it is based on the systematics of the original Holzstraße site.

The university library is primarily open to members of Mainz University of Applied Sciences, but also accepts alumni and external users. Authorization for the lending process requires a written application with a photo ID. This also applies to students at Mainz University of Applied Sciences. The student card alone does not entitle you to check anything out. More detailed information on this can be found in the rules of use.

The basement of the library on campus can also be accessed directly from the elevator. This requires a chip card, which you can obtain from the library staff if needed.

The user regulations contain the specific rules for lending, such as authorization, fees, lending restrictions and loan periods. The current version can be found in the download "Terms of Use".

Rückgabe: Jede Standortbibliothek nimmt ausgeliehene Medien der anderen Standortbibliothek zurück. Ausgenommen davon ist die Fernleihe. Diese Medien müssen am Ort der Ausleihe abgegeben werden.

Ordering: Unfortunately, it is not possible to order media from the other location.
Return: Each location library accepts media borrowed from the other location library. Interlibrary loan is not included. These media must be handed in at the location where they were checked out.

The inventory of the university library are listed in the OPAC of the local system Rheinhessen. The link can also be found as a quick link (under "Students") on every page of the homepage of Mainz University of Applied Sciences.

The library location owning the specific media is specified in the information of the collection.

Holzstraße location: All books and other media in the open access area, parts of the closed repository as well as all periodicals are registered. This inventory can be searched in the library in the LARS database system.

Campus location: All books and other media in the open access area are included. Periodicals are not listed.

The library regulations form the legal basis for the university library. They regulate the organization, structure, tasks and use.
The current version can be found in the download "Library regulations".

The use of the university library is free of charge for members of Mainz University of Applied Sciences and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. Interlibrary loan is excluded. If the loan period is exceeded, default fees will be charged, which are also due without a warning or a reminder by the "Bücherwecker".
The current fees can be found in the download "Terms of Use".

Seminar/semester reserve shelf
Professors can compile literature from the library for their lectures. As a seminar/semester reserve collection that cannot be borrowed, these media are then placed on a special shelf.
After the end of the semester, the seminar/semester reserve collection is disbanded.

The University Library provides PCs for use of the internet free of charge. Only members of Mainz University of Applied Sciences are permitted to use them.

Professors at the location are responsible for selecting the media and maintaining the holdings. We also welcome literature suggestions from students.
For procurement requests, the downloads of the order forms can be used.

For all first-semester students, the location libraries offer an "Introduction to Library Use".
Research training courses for OPAC and databases can be signed up for at any time.
