Services for students at distance courses at LUSEM

Service for distance students only applies to courses created as distance courses.

Library account

To borrow books from the Libraries at Lund University, you need to register a library account in our library catalogue LUBcat. If you borrow on site at one of the libraries, you also need a LU card.

Search and request

Our books can be found in the library catalogue LUBcat. When you have found what you want, use the library contact form to request the book.

Journals and reference books are not included in the service.

Borrow and return

The loan period for course books is 14 days, plus a few extra days for shipping. Other books can be checked out for at least 28 days. Your loan will be automatically renewed, if there is no reservation for the book. You can check your loans in LUBcat.

Please note that you are responsible for the cost of postage when you return your long-distance loans. If you return a course book late, you will be charged a late fee of SEK 10/book and day.
