Limited service due to the coronavirus
COVID-19 affects the services at all libraries at Lund university in one way or another. Please contact your library for more information.
Limited opening hours
Several libraries have limited opening hours, you find the opening hours here.
Please note, the opening hours can be changed at short notice.
Study at home
As a student or researcher at Lund University, you have access to our electronic resources even when you are outside the campus network. Access via LUBsearch and log in with your student or LU account.
Loan periods are still normal.
If you are healthy and have the opportunity, you should of course return the books you have borrowed - keep in mind that others can stand in line for the books.
The libraries at Lund University will return to normal lending routines on 15 September 2021. This means that from 15 September, overdue fines will again be generated for chargeable material that is returned late. The maximum number of automatic re-loans for renewable textbooks returns to 5 re-loans. The loan periods are unchanged and reminders are sent out in the usual order.
On 19 March 2020, the libraries at Lund University cancelled overdue fines for books and other items that were returned too late. This was a part of the libraries' adjustment to the coronavirus and was done to avoid that disease carriers or those in quarantine would need to come to the libraries for the returning of books.
Books can be returned at all libraries at Lund University. Some libraries, for exemple the University Library (UB), have a book drop box where you can return your books.
You can also return books by ordinary mail.
Open access due to the coronavirus
Many publishers have made their publications freely available as a response effort due to the difficulties caused by coronavirus. We will gather information about open resources in our Swedish LibGuide 'LUBsearch & Elektroniska resurser' .
