You will find our course books in the room past the computers and the copy machines. Read more on our page about course books.
Open Collection (Öppen Samling)
In front of the circulation desk, you can find our open collection (Öppen Samling - ÖS). It consists of popular circulating literature.
You are guaranteed a loan period of 28 days, and thereafter the book can be requested by someone else.
All titles in the Open Collection are searchable in Lovisa and LUBsearch, and the books are arranged on the shelves by subject.
A large part of our books are placed in closed stacks, and must be requested in advance in the library catalogue Lovisa.
You can pick up the book one hour later at the circulation desk. Requests made after 15.30 or on weekends can be picked up the following working day.
