Picking up and returning books

Direct pick-up

When the book is listed in LUBcat as being at "Campus Helsingborg" under the section "Available on shelf", you can pick it up yourself.

Most books are classified by author surname. Exceptions are books with an editor or books with more than three authors, which are placed on the shelf according to title.

You borrow your books in our self-service machine.

Picking up a book at another library within Lund University

In most cases, you can have a book sent by our transport service to the library of your choice within Lund University. You request the book in LUBcat. Some restrictions apply.

Requesting material from the stacks

If the book you are looking for is in the stacks, this will be indicated in LUBcat and you need to request it via the LUBcat request button which features in each post. When the book is available for pick-up a notification is sent to the email address in your library account.

Returning books

You can only return books during library opening hours. You can return your books in the book drop when the library is closed. Books, returned in book drops, are checked in the following working day. Course books that are overdue then will generate an overdue fee.

Books which were borrowed from a library within Lund University can be returned at any of the University’s libraries.
