At the library

BTH’s library provides modern and well-equipped spaces for your studies as a student. Located at the far end of the upper floor, you’ll find Lövsalen (H313), designed as an Active Learning Center with round tables for group work, screens, and whiteboards. Lövsalen is accessible to students when not reserved by staff; check current bookings here.

We welcome suggestions for the development of library spaces and study environments.



Study Environment

The library offers various acoustic environments:

Tyst zone Silent zone: with individual study seats, book hall, lower floor.

Lugn zone Low volume: for individual studying or group work with subdued conversation, book hall, lower floor.

Samarbetszon Collaborative zone: for group work and collaboration, study hall, upper floor.


Group rooms

Group work rooms equipped with LCD screens and whiteboards are available. Borrow and return whiteboard markers at the information desk.

Please Note:

  • Group rooms cannot be reserved; arrive early if you need one, as they tend to be occupied quickly.
  • Group rooms are primarily for group work; individual workspaces are available in the library. The lower floor provides a quieter environment, including a designated silent zone with a sea view.
  • Group rooms cannot be locked if you need to leave, for example, for lunch.


Printer/copy machine/scanner

We have multifunction printers at the library for printing, copying and scanning. To use them you need a BTH account and a Dibs account. The cost of printing and copying will be charged to your account.

You can scan documents as PDF files and send them to your e-mail, free of charge.

Wireless network

In all BTH premises in Karlskrona and Karlshamn, you can connect your laptop to the wireless network if you are a student at BTH.

Computer screens

An HDMI cable connects your computer to our screens. Remember to bring your own converter if your computer doesn’t have an HDMI port.

Code of conduct

The following code of conduct aim to create a pleasant and inviting environment at BTH’s library:

Work Environment:

  • Remember that the library is a workplace for many; show consideration by speaking in a normal conversational tone and lowering the volume on your mobile phone.
  • Smoking is not allowed in the library.

Food and Drink:

  • Beverages are allowed in the library, but if you wish to eat, OASEN (The Oasis) outside the library on the second floor is the perfect place. It offers both seating and microwaves if you need to warm your food. No food is allowed in the library.

Search Computers:

Library search computers should only be used following BTH’s IT regulations and SUNET’s guidelines.

Equipment for loan

In addition to books, you can borrow other equipment for your studies:

  • Whiteboard markers and erasers for whiteboards in group rooms.
  • Earplugs.

Campus Karlshamn

There is also a library at Campus Karlshamn where anyone is welcome.
