The Lund University Libraries network
Since 2001, the libraries at Lund University have been organised into a network.
The libraries within the network which are connected to a faculty, department or centre are funded by that faculty/centre. The libraries are responsible for the day to day service to students and researchers within their subject area. The University Library provides services to all users within the University. All the libraries in the network are public and accessible to members of the general public as well.
The task of the library network
The principal task of the network is to support education and research at the University through good access to quality controlled information. The libraries play a central role in the dissemination, storage and efficient management of information. We offer students, teaching staff and researchers appropriate library and information services close to their work. Other important activities are teaching in the field of information literacy for the University’s students and support for researchers on publication issues and the research process.
We work together
The libraries in the network work together on the basis of a strategic plan. The plan states the orientation of shared activities and decisions for the next few years. The same lending rules apply at all the libraries and we cooperate on our various information management systems, such as LUBsearch and Lovisa. The library employees work together in their various fields of expertise in strategy, project and working groups. We continuously update our skills and have a joint professional development plan.
