Now we're moving back again!


From  June 2, we begin preparations to move back to the newly renovated premises on the entrance floor.

This means that access to the entrance floor will be limited. Some shelves in the Year Suites will be unavailable for visitors. If you need a book from the closed area please contact the information desk and we'll fetch the book for you.

Book return
Please return all books at the information desk.

Reserved books and orders from the closed stocks.
Books for pick-up are placed on carts near the current pick-up shelves.

Relocation of books
Starting next week, book collections are to be moved within the library. The books will be available for most of the time. Contact the information desk if you don’t find what you are looking for. In total we will move 8,000 running meters of books and most books will now get their permanent placement. This is expected to be completed in early July.

Category : Nyheter E-resurser Open Access Humaniora Samhällsvetenskap

Right now we have a test period for the French portal Open Edition. The test will run until July 30.

Open EditionOpen Edition Portal Open Edition consists of four platforms:

Journals (most in French).
Books (Mostly French, but also English, Italian and Spanish).
Conference Calendar.
Blog portal for 854 research blogs.

Open Edition (Information in English) is an initiative for Open Access publishing in the social sciences and humanities, with the French organization Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (or Le Centre pour l'édition électronique ouverte (http://cleo.openedition.org/ ) behind it.

Most of the journals and e-books from Open Edition is open access, but only in html format. OpenEditon applies a business model where the main product is free and freely available, but a fee provides access to premium services. (Compare with Spotify)

During the test period, you get access to the payment service, that is, the ability to download articles and a selection of books in PDF and ePub format without technical copy protection (DRM). This also applies to mobile reading tools such as smartphones and tablets.

You have test access to 120 e-journals and a selection of 64 e-books in the "Open Edition Freemium" model. Please note that the test regards the format and that access does not cease completely 30/7.

Here is a list of the book titles included in the test. (PDF) 

And here are the journals included.

What happens in the library in week 21?


Extended loan period on 30-day loans. Journals and art books are packed, and some of the reading spaces and group rooms are closed for renovation. 

Journals and art books are packed
On May 20, all the journals in the humanities and social sciences with placement A- Mo are packed , due to moving of the shelves. This also applies to all art folio books. These collections are estimated to become available again after midsummer.

Reading space on the upper level disappears
All study areas by the window in the unrenovated section of the library will be dismantled. This is in preparation for the last phase of the renovation, beginning in mid-June.

Some grouprooms closes
The unrenovated group rooms on the upper floor and on the entrance level can no longer be reserved , but is fine to use them as long as they have furniture. The rooms will be emptied starting May 20

Extended loan period on 30-day loans
The books that normally have a loan period of 30 days will, from now, get a return date in mid-September. We want to avoid large amounts of book returns in connection with the forthcoming relocation of book collections and the discharge machine.
