Loans and renewing of loans
You search for books in the Library Search Tool. If the book is available, you pick it up from the shelf and borrow it from our loan machine.
The loan period is 14 days for course books and 28 days for other books. You can extend the loan if no one is in the queue.
If you study distance education at Luleå University of Technology and live elsewhere, contact a library in your area.
If you want to extend the loan period for your books, you do so via your library account. You log in with your social security number and your PIN code. If there is a queue for the book, it is not possible to extend the loan.
If a book is on loan, you can reserve it.
Search in the library's search box to make a reservation for the book. You will receive a message when the book is available. The message states how long the book is reserved for you.
If the book is available on the shelf, you pick it up yourself and then borrow it from the loan machine.
Fees and charges
The late fee for course literature is SEK 50 in case of delay and then another SEK 50 if the book is not returned/renewed. The amount is a maximum of SEK 100 per book.
If a book is not returned, we consider it lost. The replacement cost is then 800 SEK per title and is added to the library account. This is the same cost for all types of books and materials. The amount is removed from the account if the material is returned. You will still have to pay the late fee, if any.
All fees are applied as a debt to the library account, which is blocked until the debt is settled. You can pay your debt online via My Library Account.
Suggested purchases and interlibrary loans
If you need material that is not in our collections, you are welcome to submit a purchase proposal.
We purchase literature that falls within the scope of our subjects.
When we cannot buy what you need, we can place an order from another library, known as interlibrary loan.
This is possible when you need to borrow scientific material for your studies or research that we do not have in our collection.
The service is available to students or those working at a university, college or research institute. For others, we refer you to the nearest municipal library.
Interlibrary loan for libraries
Libraries that want to order from us should primarily order through Libris. Otherwise, please contact us using the form below. Each library can extend interlibrary loans themselves. Contact the library for login details.
