Information about the library during COVID-19

On this page we will gather current information about the library services during the COVID-19. The information on this page is updated continuously.

Visiting the library

The University Library and the Medical Library are now only open for book loans and returns as well as printing and copying. It is no longer possible to study at the library. The library on Arts Campus is closed until further notice. The library opening hours may change at short notice, but you can find our current opening hours at our home page or at the bottom of this page.

Only visit the library if you feel healthy. Follow the recommendations from the university:

University recommendations regarding COVID-19

Group study rooms

All group study rooms of the library are closed (University Library, Medical Library and Universum). 

Resource rooms

It is still possible to book resource rooms.

Off-campus access to electronic library resources 

As a student or employee, you can access the library's electronic resources outside the university network. Here you find information about the different methods to connect to the resources:

Off-campus access

Loans and reservations

It is no longer possible to make book reservations. Reserved books that are already on the pick up shelf may be picked up. Previously made reservations will be cancelled. The reason is that, reserved books must be returned, and we do not want to force anyone to go to the library to return books.

Already borrowed books will be automatically renewed until we have further information. You can get an overview of your loans through My Account.

Open lectures, courses and workshops

Our open lectures, courses and workshops are cancelled to the end of the spring semester, in accordance with the university's recommendations.

Already booked distance courses will continue as usual. 

Library instructions and opportunity for tutoring remotely

All library instruction and tutoring with physical meetings has been cancelled. Instead, we offer the possibility to library instruction and to schedule a tutoring appointment remotely.

Posting ceremonies

All posting ceremonies at the University Library are cancelled until further notice and it is not possible to make bookings for future ceremonies. Doctoral theses must, as usual, be posted in DiVA at least three weeks before the public defence.
