Welcome to the library
Our libraries are open for everyone, the general public as well as students and faculty members at the university together with employees at Västerbotten County Council. At the library, everyone should be treated with respect and show consideration for other people’s needs to study in peace and quiet.
Equal opportunities at the library
Our policy is that everyone should feel safe and secure in our libraries. In this work we include all protected grounds of discrimination according to Swedish legislation and the university's vision and basic values.
Speech synthesis is installed on all library computers. The program can read text on the Internet and Microsoft Office.
If you have a reading difficulty you can have your course literature adapted as talking books or in other formats or use software to support reading and writing. At the University Library there are resource rooms that you can book, which have adaptations and custom software for advanced spelling.
