Books at Lund University libraries

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

You can also find books in LUBsearch. LUBsearch is our shared access point to all our library resources. In addition to the material also listed in LUBcat , you have access to the library’s digital resources. LUBsearch offers you more search options than LUBcat.

LUBsearch - discovery system for printed and electronic resources

Some older Swedish literature (printed before 1957) may not be listed in LUBcat. This type of material can be requested via the University Library.
