Course literature, request and renew


Course literature

What is a short loan?

The campus library where the course is administered, holds two copies of all required course literature : one copy is for short loan and can be booked in advance, in the library search system Primo. Remember that a short loan must be returned at the library where it was borrowed.

We recommend that to be sure of the loan, you should book the title(s) in advance for collection at the library. If the book is not lent out you can lend it one hour before the lending period starts. If booked, the item will be held for you one hour after the lending period starts.

The other copy, the 14 day loan, can be reserved in the library search system Primo, if not available on shelf.

Loan periods

Mon-Thurs 10 am—10 am next day

Friday 10 am — 10 am on Monday 

Overdue / late returns

Late return of a short (course) loan is charged with an immediate fine of 100 SEK, with a further 100 SEK/day until the loan is returned. Short loans must be returned to the library where they are checked out.

Reservation limits

You are allowed three current reservations. Please note that you may borrow as many short loans as you like.

Checking out a reserved short loan

You can check out your booking 1 hour before the start of the period, providing the book is in and 1 hour after. After that the reservation is cancelled and the copy then becomes available to other borrowers.
