You can see all current opening hours on the page Contact and opening hours. Today's opening hours are always displayed on the bottom of the library's start page. Please note that you cannot use the library outside of the opening hours.
The Information desk
The information desk at the library is staffed during the entire opening hours. This is your key to navigating the library's resources and the library building, whether you have a general question or need help finding research for your essay. If your question is more advanced, try to come when regular staff is present.
We have all the course literature you might need for your course, but you may have to wait for your turn. If a book in on loan, you can reserve it. In the day loan room, you will every morning find one copy of each course book. We also have a vast variety of other books, and through us you can access many databases, journals and e-books. See more about our material on the page Library collections. Read more about loan periods and more on the page Borrow.
Talking books, Braille and other accessible formats
Have you got a reading impairment and need to get your course literature in accessible format, for example as talking books from Legimus? Read more about the library's support for students with disabilities, or make an appointment with our Accessible Media Service team.
A tip for all students at SH is to get the text-to-speech software TorTalk on your phone and computer free of charge. With the software, you can listen to digital texts.
The library has a range of study environments for different needs and purposes. There are quiet areas where you can sit in peace, and other areas for group studies.
Computers and printers
We have stationary computers for you to use. There are two printer rooms where you can print either from a library computer or your own, if you are an SH student.
