External Visitors

Visitors to the university can use a library card that is issued at the library.

To obtain a library card, you must be over 18 years and present a photo identification card that was issued in Sweden. If you do not have a Swedish ID number, a valid photo ID and proof that you are a student at a college or university in Sweden will suffice.  

The library card is a personal document. No one other than you should have access to it. If you lose your library card, you should immediately report it to the library, and we will freeze the card.

The head of the customer service department has the right to make exceptions to the library card rules.
