Services to distance students

You can get books and journal articles sent to you and you have access to most of the databases available at the library from home. We send books home to you without cost but you have to pay for freight when returning the books. Send them back to adress:

University of Borås
The Library

To receive articles costs 40 SEK/article. We do not copy material from books which are available in our collections.

You have to attend one of our distance course/programmes at the University of Borås to be eligible to get material sent home to you; you have a library card and a userID to our IT-systems. Also, you have to live outside of Borås municipality. If we do not have the books you are looking for you may make an interlibrary loan, in other words we borrow the material from another library and forward them to you.

As a distance student you have the possibility to use services for students such as search support, Language Lab, Swedish as a second language, reading and writing disabilities/dyslexia.
