The same general lending conditions are applicable at all libraries included in the Lund University Libraries network – LUB. The conditions represent an agreement between the borrower and the library. The lending agreement takes effect when the library card is used for the first time and thus does not require a signature to be valid. The lending conditions are set by the Lund University Libraries, Library Board, and approved by the university’s Legal Division. Library users must keep themselves informed of any changes in the conditions, which may be carried out in the future.
Just about anyone who lives in Sweden and is 18 years of age can be issued with a library card at LUB. Persons without a Swedish personal identity number who are not guest students or researchers at Lund University, must have a guarantor and show photo ID.
The regulations stating what you can borrow and for how long, vary among the different libraries within LUB. Reference books, journals, special collections and older material are often for reference only. For further information, please see the web site of each library.
Course books (i.e. Kursbok): as a rule*, you can keep course books for 2 weeks.
Other books (i.e. Monografi): as a rule*, you can keep a Monografi for up to 6 months. If the Monografi is requested by someone else during the 6 months, you will be requested to return it. However, you are always guaranteed a loan period of 28 days. You can keep check of your library account at http://lovisa.lub.lu.se.
* There might be local discrepancies; always check with the library in question.
