The library during COVID-19

(Last updated: 28 June) On this page we will gather current information about the library services during COVID-19. The information on this page is updated continuously.

Avoid visiting the university unless it is necessary, and absolutely refrain if you have the slightest symptoms of disease.

Visiting the library

The library is only open for book loans and returns as well as printing and copying. It is no longer possible to study at the library and all group study rooms and study areas are closed.

This summer, the University Library and the Medical Library will be open according to summer opening hours and the library on Arts Campus will be closed. Current opening hours are posted at our home page and at the bottom of this page.

Exceptions for research and special computers

We make certain exceptions for researchers regarding the rule against studying in the library. Contact the library if you need to study materials that is only for in-house use.

Our computers with special programs (for example Eikon), the special computers for archives and special collections and our microfilm readers are available for you who need them.

At the start of the autumn semester

From 30 August, the library will be open with regular opening hours. The group study rooms and study areas will once again be open, but the chairs and tables will be further apart than normally.
