Information from Örebro University Library on the coronavirus
The University Library has taken a number of measures due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Last updated on October 27, 2020, 14:25
From 2 November, the Main Library will again open at 8:00 on weekdays. Study places can be used and books can be returned or borrowed, but no staff will be available to answer questions 8:00–9:00. From 9:00 you can use our chat service if you need assistance.
Until further notice, the Medical Library will open a bit later than normally to guarantee that they can be staffed.
We are also taking various measures to reduce the risk of crowding at the libraries. Our online support is being extended further so that you can receive assistance when you are not on campus. Please refrain from visiting our libraries if you are ill or have symptoms of illness.
The number of study places at the libraries has been halved to limit spread of the coronavirus. Please respect the notices on display and do not move around chairs or desks.
Returning library books
Please return your books to the drop boxes placed at the entrances of all libraries.
If you have trouble getting to the library to return your books, you can always ask someone else to drop them off. Otherwise, please contact us to find a solution.
Do you need assistance?
The information desks are staffed, but to reduce the risk of crowding at the libraries, please contact us primarily via telephone, email or chat. We promise a quick response. If you need assistance with information retrieval or academic writing, please visit the Lyktan Study Support Centre online or book a tutoring session.
Remember that you can use the information on our website to work on your own on information retrieval and academic writing. Our research guides and pages on search techniques include advice and support for information retrieval, while our guide to academic writing includes guidelines and tips for writing at university level. The University Library also has a YouTube channel with short films, mainly on academic writing in Swedish.
Reserving books: Staff
Employees of Örebro University and Region Örebro County can continue to reserve library books and collect them upon receiving the confirmation email. Unfortunately, we cannot offer this service to students or the general public.
