You can easily find the books available at Lund University’s various libraries in our library catalogue LUBcat.
  • LUBcat– Search for both printed and electronic books at Lund University. Many older books (1800–1957) are not visible here.
  • LIBRIS – Search for books in all Swedish research and special libraries. LIBRIS features most Swedish books printed from the 1600s and onwards, as well as many international titles from the same period.
  • LUBsearch (ePublications) – Search for e-books at Lund University (limit a completed search to Resource type: Book).

How to find older books

Our older books up to the 1950's are sometimes but not always registered in LUBcat.

  • Catalogue-1957 – Search the University Library's older books printed until 1957.
  • ALVIN – We are continually working on digitizing older printed books, making them freely accessible online. We are currently transferring all our digitized collections to ALVIN.

How to request books

Remember that most of our books are in storage. You must request the book you need in advance, via LUBcat or Catalogue -1957. You can fetch books in the Open Collection (shelf mark ÖS ...) yourself.
