Textbooks for the Faculty of Science

Textbooks for the Faculty of Science can be borrowed at the Biomedical Library on Medicinaregatan 4.

Please note that you cannot return books from Gothenburg University Library at Chalmers Main Library. This is because Chalmers Library and Gothenburg University Library have different systems for borrowing and returning books.

Many of the textbooks are available as e-textbooks. You will find textbooks in Supersearch. Use the filter Textbook when you search Supersearch to easily limit your results to only textbooks.
