Loans, requests and orders

Summer loans

All loans from 3 June (not including interlibrary loans) have extended loan periods until 14 August at the earliest.

If you wish to know your specific return dates, log into your library account.

You can request books and order interlibrary loans all summer, but you can only pick up books when the library is open.

If you want to return material, you can do so in the book drop outside the main library's entrance. The book drop is open all summer. 

If you don't need a specific book during summer, remember to return your loans before summer!

Access to electronic material off campus

As a student or employee with a KTH account, you automatically have access to all electronic material through the library, even if you work remotely.
