Who can order an interlibrary loan?

The interlibrary loan service is primarily intended for students and staff at Jönköping University.

It is also possible for students from other universities to request interlibrary loans, although to a more restricted extent. Please, contact for more information.

Other library users are referred to their local public library. 

What material can be requested?

Material that you need for your studies or research, and is not found in our library in printed or electronic form, can be requested as interlibrary loans.
