The Medical Library at the University Hospital is no longer staffed. However, it is still open as usual with access to group study rooms and computers. During the 2019 spring semester, all books will be moved to the BMC Library.

Questions and answers

What is happening with the Medical Library, is it closing?

No, but the Library will be unmanned from January 2019. You can reach the staff mainly through chat, phone or email via Ask the Library.

  • Group study rooms and computers will be available.
  • You can book an appointment for individual guidance and workshop as usual.
  • You can search for and claim books.
  • Books can be checked out and returned with the check out/return machine. To renew loans you can visit My loans at the Library website.

Why is this happening?

The Hospital and the University have decided to turn part of the Library's current premises into a lunch room. Therefore, printed books and journals will be moved to the BMC Library.

Why will the Library be unmanned?

Recent years there has been a decrease in patrons asking for help in the Medical Library, while requests for individual guidance and workshops have increased. When the Librarians no longer need to man the information desk they can be more available where they are more needed.
