Welcome to Malmö University and the Library! On this page, we have gathered some library information that can be good to keep track of as a new student.

How to find course literature

Are you finding it difficult to get hold of all the books on your course literature list? Here are some tips on where to look for them!

Borrow books

You find course literature and other books that you can borrow from Malmö University Library in our database Libsearch.

Books that are available at the Orkanen Library or the Health and society Library can be picked up at each library. If all copies of the book are borrowed you can make a request.

The Odontology Library is closed right now. The most commonly used "Library use"-books you can find at Orkanen Library to read. 

If you need an available book from the Odontology Library you can order it here

  • You can borrow books for 3 weeks.
  • You can renew your books yourself at My Loans/Renew loans.
  • The fine for overdue items is SEK 10 per book per day.
  • It's important that we have your current address and email. You can update your contact details at My Loans/Renew loans.

If we don't have the book you are looking for, try LIBRIS. In Libris you find books at almost all Swedish libraries, perhaps another library near you have your book.

With a little luck, you can find the books you need second hand. Here are a few places where you can find secondhand books:

You can compare the price of new books in the biggest online Swedish bookshops by using the service bokfynd.nu. The site is in Swedish only but is very useful.

Logins & Multicard

When you get your multicard this is automatically also your library card. When you request a book or need to renew your loans use your first name and the multicard number to log in. 

You can read e-books or online articles at the library website, use your computer ID (the same login that you use on Canvas) to log in.
