Interlibrary loans

You can request interlibrary loans for items that are not included in the collections of the libraries at Lund university through your subject/faculty library, if you are student or staff at the university. The University Library requests interlibrary loans only for certain categories of patrons.

The University Library requests interlibrary loans from other libraries to the following groups

  • students and employees of Lund University’s specialised centres,
  • employees of Lund University’s central administration, and
  • emeriti from all faculties at Lund University.

If you are a member of any other faculty, you can request an interlibrary loan at your subject library, see the link below to a list of all of our subject libraries.
