Books and articles that are not available at the library can be borrowed from other libraries. This service is available for students or employees at Örebro University or employees at Region Örebro County.
The library only borrows material for study and/or research purposes. What can be ordered includes books, book chapters and articles. First check that the book or article you want to order is not in either the library's online or print collections with the discovery search service Primo.

- Materials already in the library. This also applies to material that has been temporarily lent or is available electronically.
- Materials available at other libraries in Örebro.

Entire journal issues or e-books. Individual articles and book chapters in e-books can be ordered.
Delivery and loan period
A book that has been borrowed from another library is usually delivered within 1–2 weeks. You will receive a notification via email when it can be picked up at the library.
The loan period for books is determined by the lending library and can vary. The loan period is usually 3 weeks–6 months.
Article copies are usually delivered within a few days. Employees are sent the copy by internal mail to the workplace (at the moment, copies are also sent by post to the specified postal address). Students will be sent a copy by regular mail to their home address.
Articles that are borrowed rfrom another library are always provided in printed format as the Copyright Act does not allow the library to forward articles in electronic form.
