Our libraries

There are two libraries and a learning common at Chalmers University of Technology: the Main Library and the Architecture and Civil Engineering Library at Campus Johanneberg and Chalmers Learning Common in Kuggen at Campus Lindholmen.

Library card

You need a library card to borrow printed books. Please bring a valid ID to either of our libraries and pick up your card.

Search for books, articles, student theses and more

You can find almost everything the library owns and subscribes to in the search box located at the top of our webpage. Type your search terms into the search box or narrow your search directly (to articles, books, journals, etcetera).
