New to the library?

*Access to the library         

IIIEE students and researchers have access to the library outside its regular opening hours. Use your LU card to enter the library. Simply place your LU card on the door’s card reader until you hear the “click” sound. (Don’t forget to charge your LU card daily in order to get access to various part of the building, including the library). There is a LU card charger on the wall, to the left of the elevator in the lobby.

* Non-IIIEE students, researchers and external users have access to the library only during regular opening hours.

Borrowing materials 

You can borrow library materials even when a librarian is not on site. A book registration form can be found by the library’s entrance.

Write down your name, today's date and the bar code(s) of the book(s) you are borrowing. You can then drop the paper note in the registration box. The materials will be registered in your library account by the librarian on the next working day.

Returning materials

When there is no librarian on site you can return your books in the book drop outside the library. The materials will be processed and registered back into the system the next working day.

Books that belong to any other Lund university faculty library can also be returned at the IIIEE library.

Books that belong to the city library cannot returned and processed at the IIIEE library or any other Lund university faculty library.
