Introduction to the Library

Here you find a short introduction to the Library's services.


To borrow books, you need a library card, bring your Hig-card to the library and we will activate it as your library card.

Library catalogue

In the University Library´s catalogue, you can locate printed books, in the library´s collections. By using your library card number and a PIN code, you can make renewals and reservations yourself.

Location of the books

All course books you will find on the entrance floor. The easiest way to find them is to search in our catalogue.


The printout-system uses a function which means that you can collect your printouts at any public printer, either with your Hig-card or with your user account and password.

There are three printers placed in the library where you can collect your printouts, copy and scan documents.

User account

To use the computers in the library and in the rest of the school you have to use your user account to log in.

Access to databases from home

Access to most of the databases is also obtainable from home, if you are a student or staff at the University of Gävle.
