Library card application and rules
Rules for borrowing
A library card is required. In order to obtain a card fill out and hand in to the library the Library Card Application(pdf, 42 kB).
Loans are issued for 21 days. Penalty fees are 5 SEK/day per item. Day loans are to be returned before 8 a.m. the next day the library is open and the penalty fee is 50 SEK/day. Journals may not be borrowed. They may be read at the Library and photocopied.
Items, which we do not own, can be ordered from other libraries. This includes journal articles as well as books. Students are required to pay for copies and for reserving books. Costs: Copies ordered from suppliers in the Nordic countries: 50 SEK/article. Copies ordered from suppliers outside the Nordic countries: 100 SEK/article. This price applies also for books borrowed from outside the Nordic countries. Ordered copies are posted to the patron's home address. Payment must be made in advance. The cost of ordering a book from another library is 5 SEK, and the cost is the same for reserving one of our own books, but if you provide your e-mail address there is no fee. If you want to order a photocopy or apply for an interlibrary loan, please use the Library's Request Form for Interlibrary Loans and Photocopies.
All items which the Library owns can be photocopied by the patron. A card for use in copying may be purchased at the main desk. Copies of reference materials - though not books denoted "kursref" - are free.
The following rules apply for day loans:
- The loan must be returned to the library before 8 a.m. the next day the library is open.
- The overdue fee for day loans is 50 SEK per book and day.
- It is not possible to make reservations of day loans.
Electronic resources such as databases, e-books and e-journals can in most cases be used by all visitors on campus. Access to licensed electronic resources from a computer off campus is granted only to students and staff at Kristianstad University.
How the electronic resources may be used is regulated by licensing agreements and copyright law. Generally speaking, the contents of the electronic resources may be used for private purposes, which include use for study and research. Single copies of documents in electronic resources may be digitally copied, saved and printed. Use for commercial purposes is prohibited.
