Due to the current situation with covid-19, many libraries around the world have currently closed, or severely limited their service. This means that we at the moment are not able to carry out interlibrary loans of books from outside of Sweden. If you are looking to place an order on a book from outside Sweden, please return with your order at a later date. Note that this only applies to book and not article copies.
Interlibrary loans for researchers and students at Lund University
Researchers and students can request interlibrary loans of material that is not held at any of the Lund University Libraries. Interlibrary loans from within the Nordic countries are free of charge, whereas loans from outside the Nordic countries are subject to a charge. Journals are not available as interlibrary loans. Instead, copies of articles can be requested against a fee. You will find information on charges for interlibrary loans on the LUB libraries’ web sites. Please note that only material that is relevent to your studies or research can be ordered via our interlibrary loan service. If you wish to request material outside your field of studies or research we recommend that you contact your local public library.
Request through your home library
You can only submit requests for interlibrary loans at your home library (the library connected to the department where you work or study). On each library’s web site, there are request forms for interlibrary loans.
