Order Interlibrary loans and copies of articles

If you are unable to find what you are looking for in the library, and the materials are not available electronically, you can order an Interlibrary loan. Interlibrary loans can be made for both books and journals. Materials being ordered must be for the purpose of research. Interlibrary loans take approximately one week to arrive. The library will e-mail you when the materials are ready for collection. Articles are sent to your home address.  If you are ordering an article please check first in the list of journals to see if an electronic version of the journal is available.

The following applies to both students and private individuals: If the book is at a library in the Stockholm area you must organize collection of the book yourself. You can see which library in the Stockholm area the book is located by using the national catalogue Libris or the Bibliotek i Stockholms län (Stockholm libraries) search.

Your Interlibrary loan orders can be found under headline "My loans" on the library website. Log in and your order should appear as soon as we have handled it.
