The Libraries at Lund University
Lund University has one of Sweden’s oldest and largest research library network with 26 libraries within 8 faculties across three campuses in Lund, Malmö and Helsingborg.
The University Library (UB) is perhaps the most special of the libraries at Lund University. Founded in 1666, at the same time as the university, it is housed in a magnificent ivy-covered building in the center of Lund and holds large collections extending over 2 000 years, covering practically all languages and subject fields.

Lund University has one of the largest collections of licensed e-resources in Sweden. One reason for this is that virtually all subject areas except Agriculture and Military are represented at LU. In December 2020, the collection of licensed e-resources at the libraries at Lund University consisted of about: 395,000 e-books, 28,000 e-journals and 208 databases.
The electronic collection contains a large variety of e-resources available in many different formats such as e-books (subject collections and individual titles), e-journals (collections and individual titles), bibliographic databases and full text databases which contains facts, news, dictionaries, handbooks, encyclopedias, film, TV, interactive courses, streaming media, music, manuscripts, patents, standards, conference proceedings, newspapers, pictures, photographs, graphic and cartographic documents, etc. The e-resources are made available and are searchable in these catalogues:
