Here we have gathered useful information for new students. Welcome to the Anna Lindh Library!
Anna Lindh Library Covid 19-restrictions
For the moment the general public has no access to the library. During the Covid-19 pandemic the library is unmanned until further notice. Personnel and students with key cards have access to the library 6 AM to 10 PM every day of the week.
The university library is available from 06.00 to 22.00 for students, employees and staff who have access cards to the Swedish Defence University. When the library is staffed, the public are also welcome.
» Practical information, opening hours etc.
If you are a student at Swedish Defence University you borrow literature with your FHS account. As from the autumn term of 2020 students will not obtain a physical library card.
When you have received your FHS account and password you log in to My loans on the library web site and change your PIN code. Then you can borrow in the library´s self service machines with your personnummer (Swedish social security number) and your PIN code.
Borrowing, renewals and reservations
You can borrow books yourself using the self service machine with your library card or personal ID number and your PIN code. The loan period for books is 28 days.
You can renew books and reserve books that are checked out by logging in to My loans on the library's website.
Books that are available on the shelves of the main library cannot be reserved: you pick up them up from the shelf yourself and borrow them.
