If you are a resident of Umeå the same circulation policies as for campus students apply. If you live outside of Umeå you may either apply for a library card at Umeå University Library to use when you are on Campus, or borrow via your local library. If you have borrowed the book on Campus you need to pay for the return postage if you are unable to return the book on time. Your local library does not bear the costs for returns of such loans.
