Digital services and resources

If you have questions or need help with information retrieval but do not want to visit the library, you can as usual during office hours reach us through chat, email or phone. Contact information for the library.

Students and staff at Mid Sweden University can search in Primo and all our digital resources from home. Read more about access off campus here.


Loans and reservations

You can continue to borrow and reserve books. If you have reserved books but do not want to come to the library to pick them up, we can send the books to your home address, follow the series of instructions in the notification message. However, we cannot guarantee that the books will be delivered to your mailbox instead of to your nearest post office for collection. The library is responsible for shipping costs to you but you have to pay for return costs.

The loan period for course books is normally 10 days, but we have temporarily extended it to 17 days. Loans are automatically renewed if no one else has reserved them, loans are extended by 10 days at a time for course books.


Study workshop

Writing tutoring and Book a librarian appointments are done digitally in Zoom or by phone. The study workshop has also replaced its drop-in times with digital times. You can find more info here.


Student counselling and Student Health

Meetings with student counsellors or at the Student Health Center are primarily done digitally.
