Create a library account

In order to borrow and request printed material at Chalmers library you need a library account. The library account is valid at all Chalmers libraries.

To access the library's e-resources, you need a Chalmers ID. Read more on Access to e-resources

For those with Chalmers ID (CID)

When you create a library account, you can use the account directly for example to request books. You borrow in the self-checkout machines at our libraries by entering your personal identity number and PIN code - no library card is needed.

For those who do not have Chalmers ID

Everyone is welcome to create a library account, even if you are not studying at Chalmers. When registering, select "General public" and follow the instructions. The first time you come to the library to borrow, we need to see your personal identification card.

To use the Chalmers library, you need to approve the terms of use. You do this when you create an account.

Logging in to your library account

You will find a link to your library account, "My Account", in the upper right corner of the library catalogue. You can see your requests and renew your loans.

You need to authorize that EBSCO, our library service provider, to save your personal data.

Borrowing & requesting

You have a guaranteed loan period of 14 days on most books, but can keep a book for up to 90 days if nobody else requests it. If another patron requests the book after 14 days you will receive an email asking you to return it as soon as possible.

Loans can be renewed twice for 30 days. For additional renewals, please bring the book to any of our information desks.

You may return the book at any of our libraries. After hours you can use the book drops, available at library entrances.

Use the library catalogue to request books. You will be notified by email when the book is ready for pickup. The book will remain on the pickup shelf for a week.

If we do not have what you are looking for, please request the book or article. Interlibrary loans can be picked up at the information desk.

You will find a link to your personal library account, "My Account", in the upper right corner of the catalogue. Here you can see your requests and renew your loans. The first time you use your library account you need to review the privacy policy of our library services provider EBSCO.
