We have adapted the way we work and the physical space so you can feel secure visiting the library.

For everyone’s safety and your own:

  • Visit us only if you are totally healthy
  • Follow the Public Health Agency’s guidelines about keeping distanced, washing your hands, and staying home if you are unwell.

You are always welcome to contact us through chat, email and telephone. Many of our services are available digitally – please use them to decrease the risk of transmission.

Opening hours from 7th of January 2021

Frescati Library is open weekdays from 8 am - 19 pm and Saturdays 11 am -15 pm. Please note that the temporary library entrance, near Bloms hus, is used on Saturdays.

The Info Desk is staffed from 10 am -19 pm on weekdays and 11 am - 15 pm on Saturdays. 

Before you come you should search book placements from your own computer or phone. To avoid crowding, there are half as many public computers as before. Computers that grant access to special databases are still accessible.

If possible, please visit us when we have fewer visitors: mornings before 11 and the last hour between 18 and 19, and generally the latter part of the week. Read more about the average flow of visitors

The Asia Library is open Tuesdays and Fridays, 13 pm -16 pm.

The Dept. of Social Work Library is closed and its collections are integrated in the Frescati Library.

Study places

You can study in the library. To help everyone distance themselves, we have placed the seats further apart, removing two thirds of the chairs. Protect yourself and others from covid-19 by respecting the seating arrangements and not moving chairs or sitting on the floor.

Returning books

You can return books 24/7 in a box outside the library.

Printing and copying

As a student at the university you can use the printomats to print, scan and copy. No more than three people should be in the printomat room at the same time. If a queue forms outside, please keep distanced there as well.

Did you know that you can collect your printouts anywhere at the university? List of all printomats.

To avoid crowding, the library now has fewer public computers. You can connect your own computer to the network and print from there. How to connect your computer.

When you need help from the library

The Info Desk is staffed from 11 am - 19 pm on weekdays and 11 am - 15 pm on Saturdays. By 10-11 am and 15-16 pm every weekday you can meet a librarian by the screen on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Read more about the help you can get via Info desk online

As always, you can also get help online on weekdays:

Digital search guidance

Students and researchers at the university can receive guidance for digital searches. Our Zoom room is open for drop-ins Monday-Thursday from 11 am - 14 pm. Information and link to the Zoom room. You can also contact bokabibliotekarie@su.se for information.

Talking book services

Those who need access to talking books can receive help with talking book registration via telephone or Zoom. Read more about talking book services here.

Electronic resources

The digital library is open 24/7 and you can access most of the library’s collections from home. You find the resources as normal by searching the catalogue and database lists.

Additionally, many international academic publishers have opened up parts of their catalogue because of the current circumstances, so it’s good to even search outside of our catalogue.

Registry office open 9-11

The registry office is open for visitors weekdays from 9 am - 11 am. It is located to the left of the library’s Info Desk. At other times they can be reached at registrator@su.se.

Stay updated

If the situation changes we will adapt as necessary – stay updated on this site and on su.se/coronavirus
