New measures taken at LiUB – reduced opening hours and 3-day loan period of course reference copies

**Detta blogginlägg är även tillgängligt på svenska**

The corona pandemic is still here and we have to continuously adapt our operations depending on the present situation with Covid-19. Please note that it is only permitted to be physically present on university premises (including libraries) if this is necessary.

Region Östergötland has declared that a personal lockdown is to be observed for the coming two weeks, starting 30 April. This is against the background of the continued serious Covid-19 infection situation. Linköping University supports this lockdown and encourages all co-workers and students to follow the recommendations in force.

From 21 December 2020, there are stricter measures in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Read more: LiU tightens Corona restrictions

Right now, Linköping University Library is open only for quick errands such as borrowing and returning books, printing and copying and not available as a place for study. If you need help from the library please use our virtual services such as  the Library’s virtual enquiry desk (open Monday – Friday 10-12 am), online chat or e-mail.

We temporarily extend the loan period for the course reference copies to 3 days.

From December 21, 2020 to June 13, 2021, the library will not charge fines or send new invoices. You are thus not forced to come to the library if your only errand is returning a library book. Existing fine charges are still valid. Special rules apply to interlibrary loans. It goes without saying that we expect you to return books if you are able.

These measures are in force until June 13. Please check this blog for updates.


Please check the web for our current opening hours.

We have also posted an overview of opening hours during Easter, Walpurgis Night and Ascension.
