Interlibrary Loans

Who may use the service

If you are a student or employee at Campus Helsingborg you can request interlibrary loans of material not found at any of the libraries at Lund University. You may only request material that is related to the course you are studying.

Search first

Search first in the library catalogue LUBcat, or in LUBsearch for articles. Please note that you cannot request the book via interlibrary loan if it is available at one of Lund University’s libraries but is currently out on loan, or if we have it as an e-book.

You can find some articles that have been published in printed journals via the Lubito service. Search for the journal and fill in a request form to receive the requested article via email, in PDF format.

Lubito - scanned articles from the University Library's collection (new tab)

Some older Swedish literature (printed before 1957) may not be listed in LUBcat. This type of material can be requested via the University Library (UB).

If the book or the journal is not listed in LUBcat or in LUBsearch, you can request it by interlibrary loan directly in Libris or by filling in the request form, see below.

Requesting directly through Libris

How much does it cost?

  • Borrowing books from libraries within the Nordic area is free of charge for students and researchers
  • Borrowing from libraries outside the Nordic area: SEK 150/book for students, free of charge for researchers
  • Articles: SEK 80/article (1–25 pages) for students, free of charge for researchers (delivered as copies)

How long does it take?

How long it takes to receive a requested book or article depends on availability and the home library of the requested book or article. Articles tend to arrive faster than books, and you should expect to wait at least a week for a book. If you have any questions, please contact us!

Notification that the material has arrived

We notify you via email when the requested material has arrived. It can be picked up at the information desk.
