On registration together with your library card or when your TUM StudentCard / PersonalCard is activated, you will automatically receive your library number and a default passwort:
= bar code number on the reverse of your TUM Library Card, StudentCard or PersonalCard
= 4-digit number, day and month of your birthday in the format DDMM
As soon as your TUM Library Card / StudentCard / PersonalCard is activated, please log in to your library account on the Online Catalogue OPAC using your library number and the default password. You will be prompted to enter a new individual password. The new password requires a minimum of 4 characters and a maximum of 12 characters.
Please note: We recommend that TUM students using the StudentCard as their library card change the default password as soon as possible, since the birthday is printed on the card.
Our Online Catalogue OPAC allows you to access your library account where you can change your password in the menu under Account > User details. The new password requires a minimum of 4 characters and a maximum of 12 characters.
If you have forgotten your password, you can obtain a new one by selecting the link "Forgot password?" from the login screen of the Online Catalogue OPAC. Enter your library number and you will receive an automatically regenerated default password to the deposited email adress. If any problems occur, please contact our First Level Hotline or ask at the circulation desk in one of our branch libraries.
