Loans and renewing of loans
You borrow in our lending machine with your social security number and PIN.
If you want to renew your loan, log in to your library account. You log in with your social security number and your PIN. If the book has been requested by an other library user, it can not be renewed.
If you are a distance student at LTU you can borrow educational literature from Luleå University Library. We will send you the book in the mail.
We do not send material abroad.
You return the book by mail and will bear the cost yourself.
Remember that the book must have arrived to the library at the return date.
Fees for late delivery for course books:
The amount is maximum 100 SEK per book
Handling charge for late books:
The amount is 150 SEK per book
Even if the loan is returned, the charge should be paid. You can pay your debt online at My Library Account.
Use the Library Search Tool. Make sure that "Books and e-books" is selected. To make a reservation, click on Request. You will receive a message when the book is available. The message tells you how long the book is set aside for you.
