Students in front of library building

Apart from the 26 libraries, the electronic library collection includes more than 15 000 e-journals, 500 databases and many e-books, dictionaries and encyclopaedias - a gold-mine for students and researchers!

The University Library (UB)

The University Library (UB) is perhaps the most special of the libraries at Lund University. Founded in 1666, at the same time as the university, it is housed in a magnificent ivy-covered building and holds large collections extending over 2000 years, covering practically all languages and subject fields.

At the libraries you will find course literature and reference material, places to study and often computer and group rooms where you can work. Many libraries provide training sessions to help improve your resource and information searching skills, in support of your studies here.
