Borrow and return

A self-service machine for loans is available at level K1. Another machine for both borrowing and returning is located on the entrance level (level 0) by the right entrance (enter from Lägerhyddsvägen). After returning material in the machine, please place it in the book drop. You may return books borrowed at our other libraries.

Books for pickup

Books that you have ordered or queued for can be found on a shelf on the right-hand side of the book drop (entrance level).

Interlibrary loans and articles

Interlibrary loans do not need to be registered in the self-service machine. Copies of articles are sent via internal mail (for teachers and researchers).

To renew a loan, use our online service My loans.
