Finding the right material

LUBsearch is the shared access point for both electronic and printed material at Lund University. Large parts of the electronic material are available in full text and a student or LU account allows you to access this from wherever you are.

LUBsearch - discovery system for printed and electronic resources

If you know within which subject you are searching for information, try taking a search route via our subject guides. If you are interested in finding material of a particular type, such as books, daily newspapers or doctoral theses, you can choose to search by material type.

Subject guides - relevant resources within our disciplines

LUBcat contains information on printed material such as books, journals and reports, but also e-books. Here you can also see which library at Lund University holds the material and whether it is available for loan. You can request material from one library within Lund University and pick it up at another.
