How to obtain a library account

You get a library account when you activate your student portal login, register to a course and approve of the library lending rules. If you have not done this you can apply for a library account here.

Searching and borrowing

We buy three to four copies of course literature titles. The lending period for course literature is 10 days. Non-course literature are 30 day loans.

Use the library's search tool Primo to search for course books and other literature. In Primo you will also find e-books, articles, journals etc. How to use Primo.

You borrow books by using our self-service. Log in with your student portal login + your password. If the book you are looking for is not on the shelf, or if it is at the other campus library, you can make a reservation in Primo.

The books you have borrowed are automatically renewed when the loan period is nearing its end, as long as they are not reserved by anyone else. If the book can no longer be renewed, you will receive an e-mail requesting you to return the book.

When you are logged into Primo you have access to My account. In My account you can see your ongoing loans, manage your reservations and change your contact information. We send messages via email so make sure we always have your correct email address.

Distance education students

If you are a distance education student and live outside our two campus towns, Östersund and Sundsvall, you can get books sent to your address. Read more about our library distance education service.
