Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open.

Requesting books

All library card holders can request books at the library. Here's how.

Requesting books is free of charge.

To request a book, search for the book in the library search tool SöderScholarexternal link and click on the title. Click the button "Request". This will take you to My loans, where you get to log in and confirm the request.

You can't request day loans, reference books or available course books, neither can you call and ask us to put them aside for you.

It may sometimes seem like a book is on loan for many months, and requesting it may seem hopeless. But, in this case, you should absolutely request the book, as the loan period will then be shortened to 3 weeks from the day you request it.

Are you a member of the public and not yet a library card holder? Do you wish to request a book before coming to the library? Fill out the form Apply for a library cardexternal link and you can have a temporary library card number sent to your email address.

Pick up requested books

We will send you an e-mail when you can pick the book up at the information desk. Make sure to keep an eye on your spam folder.

Unable to pick up the book yourself? You can send someone else to get it for you. They must bring their own as well as your valid ID.
