The library card is valid until further notice. If you do not belong to any of the above groups you are still welcome to use the library, but loans must be arranged through other libraries as inter-library loans.
You can apply for a library card on our web page. To get the card you need to show a valid photo ID. The library card must then be signed. Always bring your card when you borrow books and other media! If you lose your card, immediately inform the library and a new card will be received through payment (See Fees).
You are responsible and liable to pay compensation for your loans.
Change of address
Please inform the library as soon as possible your change of address, e-mail or telephone number. You can do this yourself, if you follow the instructions on our homepage under “My account”.
We send out reminders, overdue notices and other correspondence by e-mail. If you do not wish to be contacted this way, please notify the library.
The loan period is normally four (4) weeks, course books one (1) week. The return date is printed on your receipt.
Books on the KURS shelf can only be borrowed by Konstfack’s students and staff.
As a Konstfack student you may borrow magazines for one week, the current issue excepted.
