Borrowing books

Information on how to borrow a book at the library.

Printed books

You can borrow printed books in our check-out machines, or come to the information desk if you want assistance. You must have a library card or an SH card with a pin code. Everyone may borrow, but you must be a student or staff member to borrow course books. Read more about borrowing on the page Borrow.

Databases and e-books

You can access e-books and databases by using your SH-account if you are a student or staff member at SH. Use your RKH-account if you are a student or staff member at RKH. All other visitors, including students at other universities are welcome to the library to use our e-resources in the library. Read more about the databases offered by the library in the databases list and about access on the pages SH: Access to databases and other e-resources and RKH: Access to databases and other e-resources.
