Requesting books

If the book you are looking for is out on loan, you can request it in Libsearch free of charge. Search for the book you want to request. Click on the “Place a hold” button. Please note that you cannot request a book if copies are available at one of our three libraries.

Returning books

At the moment students and staff can return borrowed books at the Orkanen Library or the Health and Society Library. The public can only return to the Orkanen Library.

See "Opening hours and contacts" for current opening hours

You can also return what you have borrowed by post. You pay the postage for returns yourself and are responsible for the books until they reach the library.
