Library card and lending rules
The library is open for students and staff at the University of Skövde, but 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 user and get a library card, please go to the information desk and bring a photo-id. It is free to apply for a library card.
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.
Course literature can not be borrowed.
You commit to the lending rules when applying for a library card and you are responsible for the loans made with your card. You are also responsible for having address and personal data updated in our records and to keep you updated about changes in the lending rules.
Books not returned on time will be demanded. When material has not been returned after repeated reminders, the user will be prohibited from borrowing further material until all books are returned.
