Urkund becomes Ouriginal

**Detta blogginlägg är även tillgängligt på svenska**

During 2020, the merger of Urkund and PlagScan resulted in Ourginal, a plagiarism detection software that is now replacing Urkund.

The launch of Ouriginal on 1 March 2021 does not entail any major changes. As previously with Urkund, teachers at LiU can access Ourignal via Lisam, LiU:s learning platform. If you are teaching at LiU and are not using Lisam, you can have an account at Ouriginal, which can be provided by the Library. If you want an account, just email us at biblioteket@liu.se.

New student – welcome to the Library this spring

**Detta blogginlägg finns även på svenska**

During the present Coronavirus pandemic, many things are out of the ordinary. But even if you can´t study on campus in the way that you are used to, you can still use Linköping University Library online. We are also open for quick errands, so it is possible to pick up books on hold, return library items etc. We are continuously working to offer as many of our services as possible digitally.

Borrowing books and making reservations

Your student LiU card functions as a library card. At the self-service borrowing machines, you can use your LiU card to borrow books and renew your loans. The loan period for books is normally three weeks, but if there is a reservation on the book when you borrow it, the loan period is reduced to one week. The maximum limit of library books that you can have on your account is 50.

When making reservations on books online, log in with your LiU-ID (xxxxx-123). Borrowing books and making reservations are free of charge.

Textbook reference copies

The library has copies of the books on your required reading list, both as home loan copies and as reference copies. If possible, we also acquire course literature as e-books. A textbook reference copy for short-term loan is marked with a red label that says “REFKURS”.

The Library online

In the library search service UniSearch, you can search for books, scholarly articles, and many other types of publications. You can place reservations on books and access our collections of e-journals, e-books and databases.

You can learn more about library services, library news and events on our blog and in social media.

To access library e-resources, you just need your student LiU-ID. Please note that you have to register for your course before your LiU-ID can be used to access library e-recources. Read more: Checklist for starting a course at LiU

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.

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.
