In June, a new library system, LUBcat, will replace our current system, Lovisa. The functionality of the new system will not contain any significant changes compared to the current one. LUBcat is based on open-source software and will include some useful new features, for example, it will be easier to log in.
Lovisa will be shut down the 7th of June at 12:00 am and LUBcat will be up and running before midsummer, the 22nd of June. During this period, our services for loaning and returning books will be limited and services will vary between the libraries. For example, the University Library (UB) will not lend out any books. To see what applies in your library, contact the library or check their website. Visit our opening hours page for information about limited opening hours during the replacement period.
We greatly appreciate if you return and/or check out the books you need before Lovisa is shut down, as this will make the process of changing systems go smoother. As of noon on the 7th of June, it will not be possible to renew loans or queue for books. From the 25th of May, it will not be possible to order books from our depots or from one library at Lund University to another.
If you have any questions, please ask the staff at your library or send an e-mail to info [at] ub [dot] lu [dot] se.
The Library is closed the following dates:
April 30 – May 1
June 6 – August 26
The Library is open to all members of the Academy (students, faculty, staff ) for loans, reference and listening. External readers and members of the public have access to books but sheet music, DVD’s and CD’s are only available to members of the Academy.
Library cards for freshmen and other newcomers can be applied for via LOVISA, the online library catalogue of the Lund University, in the self-registration form: http://www.mhm.lu.se/om-musikhoegskolan/bibliotek Click on the link: Ansökan om lånekort.
