    Always borrow course-reference books

    All course-reference books and reserved books now need to be borrowed before taking them out of the room.

    This applies to all reserved books and course-reference books that are placed in room 1 E 225.

    Borrow the books in the selfcheck machine by scanning your Kau-card, or by entering your Swedish ID number/library card number, and your pin code.

    When you have finished reading the course-reference book please return it in the self-return machine. Course-reference books can be borrowed overnight, but needs to be returned no later than 1 hour after the library opens the next morning.

    Rearrangement of bookshelves

    We are working on a project to improve the study environment in the library

    During summer we have rearranged books and journals in the library. The goal is to make space for better study environments,including more group study places, lounge areas and new technology. The project will continue during the autumn semester and we hope to have everything ready in January 2017.
    During this time it sometimes will be some noise and disruption in the library which we apologize for.

    If you can not find what you are looking for, please ask the staff!
