Information about the library during COVID-19

(Last updated: 31 August) 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

All our libraries are now open with regular opening hours. Our current opening hours are posted at our home page and at the bottom of this page.

It is possible to study at the library. The study areas are open but the chairs and tables in the library are further apart than normally. Please take into consideration that the group study rooms often are quite small and might not have room for several persons while maintaining social distancing. 

Only visit the library if you feel healthy.

Loans and requests

It is now possible to request books that are checked out. You can get an overview of your loans through My Account.

Support for reading and writing

It is 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.
