At the libraries you will find course literature and reference material, as well as computer, group and quiet reading rooms where you can work. Many faculty libraries offer training sessions to help improve your skills in finding resources and information to support your studies.

Open access to scientific documents

Lund University has an Open Access policy, which provides free online access to scientific documents.

Public libraries

There are also a number of free public libraries in Lund, Malmö and Helsingborg. These libraries have a good selection of books, magazines and newspapers in many languages.

Their websites are mainly in Swedish, but some pages may be available in English or have translation modules.
