Scientific Journals and Databases
LUBsearch is the university-wide portal to the libraries' e-journals, databases, medical dictionaries and encyclopedias, and other e-books. LUBsearch is freely searchable, but the electronic journals can only be read and downloaded within the university network, or if you log in with your Lucat-id. Choose "Hello, Guest. Login for full access".
To suggest a journal, database or book purchase, use this form:
Ask the Medical Faculty library at med.lu.se
In the library catalogue you can see if the book you are looking for is available, if it is a course book or a reference book, which library it is placed at and the shelving location. You can choose which library you prefer as pick-up location when placing a request for a book. It is not possible to place a request for available course books.
The loan period for text books is 14 days, with automatic renewal up to 5 times as long as the book is not requested by another patron. For other books in our collections the loan period is 28 days with automatic renewal up to 11 times as long as the book is not requested by another patron.
You are personally responsible for your loans and keeping track of lending periods.
