Interlibrary loans for other libraries

Libraries in Sweden as well as in other countries can request loans or copies from the University Library’s collections.

Loan period

Loans will be automatically renewed if there is no queue. The loan period is a maximum of 12 times 28 days.

To see your loans:

  1. Log in to LUBcat. Username is your LIBRIS code in lower case letters and your password is 1234.
  2. Click on My account

Libraries without the LIBRIS code can email requests to:

fjarr [at] ub [dot] lu [dot] se (fjarr[at]ub[dot]lu[dot]se).

Terms and conditions

Articles from journals and material that can be copied onto 25 A4 pages are scanned and delivered via email to Swedish, publicly funded libraries. The receiving library may not release the scanned copy in electronic form; the article must be printed and handed out to the borrower.

Deliveries and claims

We use PostNord for packing and shipment of interlibrary loans from Lund University Library. If a shipment from us does not reach your library or is damaged upon arrival it is our responsibility to claim the shipment with PostNord. Please let us know within 20 days of your ILL request if your shipment never arrived or was damaged.

If a shipment disappears or is damaged on its way back to us, then it is the responsibility of the borrowing library to make the claim with their shipping service.
