If the material that you need for your studies or research is not available at any of the libraries at Lund University, you can request an interlibrary loan through the library. This applies for students, researchers, teachers or other employees at the Faculty of Law and you need a valid library card.
Please note that we do not order material available at any of the other libraries at Lund University, even though it is currently on loan, is reference material or an e-book.

You can also order by using our local interlibrary loans system, BasILL. This is also used if the material you need is not available in Libris or if you want to order article copies.
In general, interlibrary loans within Sweden can be picked-up within 7 to 14 days. Loans from abroad can take significantly longer. Copies are usually delivered within 2 to 5 days.
When the material has arrived, you will be notified by the email connected to your student account. For researchers or teachers, the faculty email is used.
At your LUBcat account it will show that you have an interlibrary loan to pick up.
Before the requested material has arrived, you can check the status of your order by login into the request form. Or you can contact the library.
For interlibrary loans, the loan period is determined by the library that lends us the book. Usually, you will get an open loan period with a guaranteed loan period of 14–21 days and you can keep the book up to 6 or 12 months if not requested.
Renewal of interlibrary loans must always go through the library.
It is possible for libraries in Sweden and the rest of the world, to order books or copies from the Faculty of Law Library.
