Summer at the SLU University Library

Published: 03 June 2022

Summer is rapidly approaching, and that means limited opening hours, extended loan periods and slightly longer waiting times for requested material.

Opening hours

Our staffed opening hours will be limited and in July all SLU Libraries will be unstaffed. But our digital customer service will be open all summer, and students and employees can access the library with their key card as usual.

See current opening hours here: Addresses and opening hours.

Loan periods

During summer we have longer loan periods for course literature. Books with a normal loan period of 8 or 14 days can now be borrowed for the whole summer. The due date is 31 August. 


The libraries will periodically be unstaffed during the summer, which means that loan and article requests may take a little longer than usual. Also, it will not be possible to request books from the SLU University Library in Skinnskatteberg or the Flyinge Equine Library.
