Inter-library loans 

When necessary, we can borrow material from other libraries, but note that this is done primarily with books for study. Fiction, simple manuals, and language courses are thus not lent from other libraries unless there is a special reason. Otherwise, it is up to the lending library to decide what will be lent out and under what conditions.

You can reserve your own inter-library loans via Libris (although all reservations pass through our library). When you log on for the first time, you will be asked to register. In order to do so, you must have a library card from a Gotland library and an email address. Don’t forget to mention at which Gotland library you will pick up the book. Write the name of the library in the field “Message to library.”

It is also possible to make your reservation at one of the information desks during opening hours.

Fees for inter-library loans

Books within Scandinavia: 20 SEK (free for students/staff Uppsala University)
Books outside Scandinavia: 150  SEK per volume

Before you ask for an inter-library loan, please make sure the material isn’t in our catalog or some other library on Gotland. If you don´t find what you are looking for, you can search in the other catalogs. Go to search.

Renewal of Almedal Library books

Material that hasn’t been reserved by someone else can be renewed a maximum of four more times. Renewal can also be made via e-mail to info@almedalsbiblioteket.se, or from one of our computer terminals.

Renewal of inter-library loans

To renew an inter-library loan, you have to contact fjarrlan@almedalsbiblioteket.se via e-mail. We will send a request to the lending library and they will let us know if a renewal is possible. In other words, you will not find out directly, but we will let you know as soon as we get an answer.
