Library card and borrowing regulations
The library is primarily open for students and staff at the University of Skövde, however it is also open for the public. In order to borrow books and request interlibrary loans you need a library card.
Everyone from the age of 16 can register as a borrower and get a library card, please go to the information desk and bring a photo-id. You commit to the borrowing regulations when applying for the card and you are responsible for the loans made with your library card. You are also responsible for having address and personal data updated in our records.
If you lose your library card it is important to report it to the library staff as soon as possible so the card can be cancelled to prevent unauthorized use. There is a replacement cost of 10 SEK for a new card.
One library card is enough
If you already have a library card in one of the following municipalities we can register it at the University Library as well. Remember to bring a photo-id. You can also register your new library card at one of these libraries. You always return borrowed books to the same library from where you have borrowed them.
It applies to the following municipalities: Falköping, Grästorp, Gullspång, Götene, Hjo, Karlsborg, Mariestad, Skara, Tibro, Tidaholm and Töreboda.
Books not returned on time will be demanded. We primarily send the demand to the e-mail address you have stated. If you don't have an e-mail the demand is sent by regular mail.
When material has not been returned after repeated reminders, the borrower will be prohibited from borrowing further material until all books are returned.
For damaged or lost books the borrower will be charged a replacement cost plus an administrative charge of 200 SEK.
