All reading rooms have up to three library search stations. From these stations (called 'Bib-Portal') you can access the University Library website, the Passau Search Portal and selected library search platforms in the region and beyond. Using these devices, you can also access e-books, e-journals and databases licensed for the University computer network.
So-called 'Pool PCs' are available in the entrance areas of all reading rooms. Use your ZIM username and password to sign in to these. The Pool PCs cannot be used by external library users (i.e. non-university members).
The reading rooms and other freely accessible rooms (group work rooms, library lounge, central library learning room) are equipped with Wi-Fi access points. You must have your eduroam certificate installed on your device to connect to the wireless network. You will need your ZIM username and password to log in. The University's Wi-Fi network is not open to non-university members.
Non-university members can use Bayern Wi-fi. It is free of charge. Licenced library content (e-books, e-journals, databases) is not available.
Some reading desks in the Central Library are equipped with a wired network connection for the lecture theatre network ("Hörsaalnetz"), which can be used via web activation. If the user's own laptop is connected by a network cable (which must be brought along) and a few settings have been made on the device, logging in can be done with the ZIM identifier and the corresponding password.
