  • The IT support in the Orkanen library is open the same hours as the Library.
  • When your requested books are ready to pick up you will get notified by e-mail as usual. But as we are currently having problems with our emails to Hotmail-users, it may be a good idea to log in to "My Loans" to see the status of your books.

For the general public

  • The Orkanen Library is open and staffed on weekdays at 10-14. This means that you can use the library, as usual, to check out, return and request books. It is also possible to get library cards and guest accounts for the library's computers.
  • If you only need to return books, you can do so at the entrance of the Orkanen building:
    Monday–Thursday 16–19 and Saturday 11–15
  • The Odontology Library and the Health and society Library are both closed to the public at the moment. This means that you cannot borrow books that are available at these libraries. If all copies of a book are on loan, however, it is possible to request the book. All books are picked up at the Orkanen Library.
