New student

Welcome to the University Library!


How do I apply for a library card?

If you are a student or employee at MDH you will use your MDH card as a library card. But first you have to register as a new patron .


I would like to know if you have the course literature I need, how to do?

Search in the library catalogue to find out if a book is out on loan or not. If the book is out on loan it is possible to make a request for it. When the book is ready for pick-up, the library will send you an e-mail.

We have many e-books so that you can read the book directly on your computer, smartphone.

In our shelf for course reference books you can find a copy of every course book. You are welcome to read it inside the library, but you can't take it home.

Search for articles, books and journals


For how long can I borrow a book?

The loan period is three weeks normally. Books that are requested by other patrons have a loan period at two weeks.


What are the opening hours?

The regular opening hours at both campus libraries are Monday-Thursday 08.00-19.00, Friday 08.00-16.00.
