Interlibrary loan service for the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology
Active students and staff at the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology can request interlibrary loans of material not found at Lund University Libraries.
Students and staff at other faculties are requested to turn to their own faculty/departmental library: All Faculty / Department Libraries
- Interlibrary loans from Scandinavian countries are free of charge.
- Loans from outside Scandinavia are always charged.

Only interlibrary loans of material that is intended for study or research purposes can be made through the Libraries of the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology. If you want to request interlibrary loans of material for other purposes we advise you to contact your closest public library.
Start with searching in our local systems
If the book or article you are looking for is located at any of the libraries at Lund University, it cannot be requested as an interlibrary loan – even if the book is currently checked out. Start with searching in the library catalogue Lovisa, or if you are looking for an article, LUBsearch. Books printed before 1957, are sometimes not listed in Lovisa, or LIBRIS, but can be found in the University Library's digitized card catalogue Katalog -1957. If the book or the journal is not listed in Lovisa, LUBsearch, or Katalog -1957, you can request it as an interlibrary loan in one of the two ways described below.
Interlibrary loans can be ordered in two ways:
Request Interlibrary Loans directly from LIBRIS
A book, found in LIBRIS, may be requested directly from the catalogue record. Before you make your first request, you must create an account in LIBRIS (when asked to fill in your Library card number, type the last 10 digits of you LU card number):
Request with library's own order form
For books not found in LIBRIS and for article copies.
Loan of audiovisual media
The Swedish Media Database, SMDB, is a search service for the audiovisual collections at the National Library of Sweden (KB). The database contains information about TV, radio, video, movies presented in theaters, CDs, and multimedia. The SMDB covers most Swedish broadcasts and publications since 1979, but also contains older material.
Audiovisual recordings needed for research projects, may be requested directly from the SMDB. The research project must first be approved by the National Library of Sweden.
