At the library

At the library

The BTH library offer students modern and well equipped premises for studies. To meet the need for more quiet places for studies, we furnished a quiet area with study seats at the ground floor of the library in 2016. We are happy to receive suggestions for development of the library premises.

Group rooms

The group rooms at the library are intended for group-work. They are equipped with LCD-screens and whiteboards. Whiteboard pens are available for loan at the information desk. You may need an adapter when you connect your laptop to the LCD-screen. There are some adapters available for loan, you find them next to the lending stations in the library.

Please note:

  • The group rooms are for group-work – for individual studies, please use our ”Quiet area” with individual study seats.
  • It is not possible to lock the group rooms if you need to leave them, for example to have a lunch break.



Use your BTH student account to login to the library computers. Some of the computers have widescreens to facilitate group-work etc.

The Library replaces student computers with laptops

During the spring semester the old computers will be removed and as from January 7th BTH students can borrow laptops at the information desk.
The laptops must stay on campus and have to be returned the same day.

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 Payex account. The cost of printing and copying will be charged to your account.

You can scan documents as PDF-files and send 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.

Quiet area

To meet the need for more quiet places for study, we furnished a new “quiet area” in 2016, with individual study seats. It is located on the ground floor of Library Gräsvik in Karlskrona.
