The Lund Observatory Library is a part of the Physics and Astronomy Library, which is a joint resource for the Department of Physics and the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics (including Lund Observatory) and now has its own website there.

In the astronomy building you find the library on the second floor.  Our librarian, Eva Jurlander, is happy to help if you are looking for a specific astronomical resource.  Older journal publications are kept in the basement but can be retrieved upon request.

The astronomy building is open 8:00 - 17:00 on weekdays.  Astronomy and physics students can access the building until 23:00, and can use the study places in the library.

Astronomy students can contact Eva if they would like to book the study room Libra, located in the library.
