Information about the library during COVID-19

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

Visiting the library

The University Library and the Medical Library are only open for book loans and returns as well as printing and copying. It is not possible to study at the library and all group study rooms and study areas are closed. These rules apply until 10 August. You can however already book group study rooms and a 3D-printer with access from 10 August and onwards.

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. Our current opening hours are posted at our home page and at the bottom of this page.

From 31 August, the University Library, the Medical Library and the library on Arts Campus will be open with regular opening hours.

Only visit the library if you feel healthy. 

Support for reading and writing

It is still possible to book resource rooms. Please contact the library for help with adapted course literature or computer software for reading difficulties. We offer assistance and appointments remotely.

Electronic library resources 

As a student or employee, you can access the library's electronic resources outside the university network. Read about how to connect to the resources:

Off-campus access

Log in to get access to our articles, databases and journals. Online newspapers are also available through the library.

Extra access to e-resources

Some publishers offer extended access to databases, e-books, journals and education material. The list of resources is updated continuously.

Extra access due to COVID-19

Loans and requests

It is no longer possible to make book requests, and previously made requests have been cancelled. The reason for this is that requested books must be returned, and we do not want to force anyone to go to the library to return books.

From 28 August it will be possible to request books again. You can get an overview of your loans through My Account.

Posting ceremonies

The posting ceremonies were cancelled during the spring, but it is now possible to book ceremonies for the autumn term. The earliest date for ceremonies is 17 August.
