Picking up and returning books

Direct pick-up

When the book is listed in LUBcat as being at "Sambib" under the section "Available on shelf", you can pick it up yourself. See a map of the library.

Most books are classified by author surname. Exceptions are books with an editor or books with more than three authors, which are placed on the shelf according to title.

Picking up a book at another library within Lund University

In most cases, you can have a book sent by our transport service to the library of your choice within Lund University. You request the book in LUBcat. Some restrictions apply.

Books on hold

Requesting material from the stacks

If the book you are looking for is in the stacks, this will be indicated in LUBcat and you need to request it via the LUBcat request button which features in each post.

When the book is available for pick-up a notification is sent to the email address in your library account.

A journal requested from our stacks will be available at our information desk the following weekday at 12:00. Journals are not sent to other libraries.

Returning books

You can only return books during library opening hours, we do not have a book drop. The book drop closest to Sambib is on the western side of the University Library. Books, returned in book drops, are checked in the following working day. Course books that are overdue then will generate an overdue fee.

Books which were borrowed from a library within Lund University can be returned at any of the University’s libraries. View the other libraries within the Lund University library network and their respective opening hours here.

If you can't make it to any of our libraries, there is always the possibility to return your loans by mailing them to us. You can find our mail address here.
