Overdue fines

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. 

Return 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' .
