Services for students at distance courses
Service for distance students only applies to courses created as distance courses, and not to those that, due to COVID-19 for the moment are given fully or partially online.
To borrow books from the Libraries at Lund University, you need to register a library account in our library catalogue LUBcat. If you borrow on site at one of the libraries, you also need a LU card.

Search and request
Our books can be found in the library catalogue LUBcat. When you have found what you want, send an email to the library at: email@example.com. State the following: your name, birth date, address, email address and the course you are taking (state the course code). Also state the author and title of the book, and whether you want a particular edition.
Journals and reference books are not included in the service.
Borrow and return
The loan period for course books is 14 days, plus three extra days for shipping. Other books can be checked out for at least 28 days. Your loan will be automatically renewed, if there is no reservation for the book. You can check your loans in LUBcat.
Please note that you are responsible for the cost of postage when you return your long-distance loans. If you return a course book late, you will be charged a late fee of SEK 10/day and book.
All digital resources the libraries at Lund University subscribe to, can be found via the search service LUBsearch. Log in with your Student account to get access from home to the e-books, e-journals and databases.
