Library users can now access the stock of 470 libraries across Switzerland through swisscovery. All they need is a library card.
To be able to borrow books and other media through the system, library users need to newly register on https://registration.slsp.ch/. For data security reasons, all users must do this personally and individually. Find out how to register here.
With a valid HSLU card or IDS library card, copying, printing and scanning is possible. The card must be loaded with an amount in banknotes. Cards from the Lucerne School of Education and the University of Lucerne are also valid.
The SLSP Courier connects all SLSP libraries across the country that offer the service. It replaces and extends the existing courier services, including the IDS and the NEBIS courier. The SLSP Courier delivers any ordered medium to your preferred library (for CHF 6) or directly to your house (for CHF 12) within 2 to 4 working days nationwide each medium. A return fee is already included in this price. However, the medium must be returned in the library where it has been picked up.
The courier between the Lucerne-based libraries (Central and University Library ZHB, University of Lucerne UNILU and University of Teacher Education Lucerne PHLU, Pedagogical Media Centre PMZ, all libraries of the Lucerne UASA) continues to be available free of charge.
It is the library user’s responsibility to return any borrowed items within the loan period. Not having received any due date reminders or recalls (by mail or email) is not accepted as a reasonable excuse for late returns.
