To be able to borrow books from the GIH Library, you need to get a library account. With the library account, you can borrow books in the library's self-service machine, as well as renew and reserve books in our web catalogue.
How to get a library account
As a new student, you get a library account by visiting the library's information desk during our opening hours. You must show identification.
If this is the first time you borrow a book from us, you agree to follow the library's borrowing rules.
More about loans
The loan period is 7 days for course literature and 28 days for other books. Renewals are made automatically as long as no one is on the waiting list, up to 6 months for course literature and up to 2 years for other books.
Overdue fines for course literature are SEK 20 per overdue book and day.
