This autumn there will still be special opening hours and partly limited service at our libraries. During the period, we expand our digital service to compensate for the limited opening hours.

For students and staff

  • From August 11 the Orkanen Library will be open for the public again. Students and staff can access the Library outside these hours with multicards and pin-code. The Health and society Library will also be open for students and staff from August 31.
    If you can't visit the Library please feel free to contact us on chat, phone or email.

  • The IT support in the Orkanen library will be open on weekdays 10-14. If you can't visit the Library and need help, you can get support via chat, email or phone.
  • The Health and Society Library will be open for students and staff from August 31.
  • The Odontology library are completely closed. If you are a Malmö university student and need an available book you will be able to order it in a form that will be available before the start of term. The requested books can be picked up at the Orkanen 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

  • From August 11 the Orkanen Library will again be 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.
  • 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.
