Please note that it is only possible to request a book when all copies of a book already are on loan. If there are still copies available at the library we do not put away and reserve these.

How to place a hold for a book:

  • Go to "My Library Account" and log in with your university account/”Other” log in.
  • Go back to the start page and search for the title of the book in the search box.
  • Click on the correct title in the list of results.
  • Scroll down to "Stockholms universitetsbibliotek" and click on the blue icon that says "REQUEST".
  • A new tab will open. Click on the blue text "Köa".
  • Confirm that you want to order the book by pressing the button that says “Ok”.
  • You have now put yourself in queue for the book.

You will receive an e-mail when the book is available for you. It is also possible to see on My Library Account when the book is available for you. Books are kept on the library’s shelves for ordered and reserved books for a maximum of three days.
