Library support for researchers at the faculty of social sciences



At the Social Sciences Faculty libraries (Sambib in Lund and Campus Helsingborg’s library) we provide researchers with support and service in various aspects of the research process. In addition to managing information resources, databases and collections which hopefully cover your needs, we also offer interlibrary loans free of cost.

We also offer:

New researcher?

You are welcome to contact one of the librarians working in the research support team or your subject librarian for an appointment where you will be introduced to our information resources. We can give you support and advice from the start of your research project, so you can get started and save time. Tell us what you want to know more about and we will customize an introduction especially for you.

Find your subject librarian

The LU card is your library card. To be able to use the LU card as library card you need to register a new account in LUBcat and then come to the circulation desk at the library to activate it. Then you will be able to borrow and return books at all Lund University libraries, and also request books to be picked up at any of the libraries.

Don't forget to sign up for the Faculty's PhD course "Kick-start to academic life - Information Management and Publication Process for Social Scientists" if you are a new PhD student at the Faculty of Social Sciences.
