Welcome to the University Library
If you want to search for books, e-books, articles or journals you can use Primo, the University Library’s search service, in the first instance. Primo is a good place to start when you are going to make a search since the service encompasses several different databases.
Due to the Corona virus
From August 24 the University library will gradually be extending the opening hours, but the library service will to some extent still be digital. The Library is currently open for MDH students and staff only.about Due to the Corona virus
The University Library is located on campus both in Eskilstuna and in Västerås and is there for the University’s students, teachers and researchers. The Library is also open to the public.
The Library is a meeting- and workplace for the University staff, and moreover offers a good study environment for its students.
Here the staff work actively to support the University’s goal to continue to maintain high international quality of its education and research. This means for example that the University’s students, researchers and teachers are quickly able to get access to relevant literature and information, regardless of the form of publication.
A lot of things concerning your book loans can be done by you yourself through your library account, such as reserving books and changing your PIN code.
