Library self-service opening hours

Self-service opening hours at the Library mean that students and employees with a valid LiU card have access to library premises outside of regular opening hours. On this page, you can find out how you can use Campus Norrköping Library, Medical Library and Valla Library during unstaffed hours.

This is how it works

To enter the Library during self-service opening hours, swipe your LiU card and enter your PIN in the card reader by the entrance. 

Always use your own LiU card when entering the premises. Do not let anyone else in, regardless if those persons have their own card or not.
