Visit the library only if you must, for example to pick up or return books. Your loans are renewed automatically, you will receive a reminder when it’s time to return an item. Use our self-service machines and outdoor book drops for borrowing and returns. About the library's adjusted service
The Library has thousands of journals in electronic and printed form. Find journals by searching for the journal name in our list of journals.
Find a journal
Use our journal list to find journals. You can search for the full journal title or words that occur in the title. You will then find out if the journal is available online or in printed form at a library.
Accessing electronic journals
Students and staff at the University of Gothenburg can access the journals through the university network, or by logging in with the GU account when outside of campus. Everyone visiting the University Library can use our computers to access the journals.
Collecting and requesting printed journals
Some of the printed journals are placed on open shelves, available for you to collect and borrow by yourself.
Older issues of journals are kept in closed stacks. These will have to be requested in Supersearch. If you are looking for older journals and you don't find them in Supersearch, you can use our scanned card catalogue Katalog -1957 (Pre -1957 Catalogue) or the printed card catalogue Katalog 58 at the Humanities Library.
Read and monitor e-journals in Browzine
With the service Browzine you can search, read, save and monitor many of the Library's electronic journals. Students and staff at the University of Gothenburg can access the articles in Browzine by logging in with their GU account.
