How and where can I get hold of Lund University’s e-books?

Finding e-books

The easiest way to find e-books is in LUBsearch or in ePublications. With some delay, they are also searchable in LUBcat and Libris.

LUBsearch - discovery system for printed and electronic resources

ePublications - search here for e-book or e-journal titles

Borrowing e-books

Most e-books can be downloaded and it is also usually possible to print some pages. To be able to read an e-book off campus, you need to log in with your student or LU account.

The conditions for e-book loans vary and are governed by the publishing house that produced the book.

You can find the publishers' conditions and loan periods here
