Register yourself as a new library user Request books A large part of the Library's collections is available on open shelves in the Library and you can collect and borrow this material yourself. However, you will need to request material that is kept in the stacks in advance via the Library's discovery tool RBsök. You can also reserve books that are out on loan. You will receive a message when the material you have requested is available for you to borrow. We will keep this material for you for 3 working days. Borrow and renew In order to be able to borrow from the Riksdag Library, you need to bring a valid photo ID. The loan period is normally 90 days, with an automatic renewal period of a further 90 days, provided no one else makes a reservation during that period. If another Library user does make a reservation, the loan period will be stopped and you will have 14 days in which to return the book. In the event that someone in the Riksdag reserves the book, you may need to return it immediately. You will then receive a message containing information about the new loan period. Some material may only be read at the Library. This primarily applies to all books published before 1900 and journals. You can keep track of your loans and requests via your library account My account in RBsök. RBsök Returning books You can return your loans to the Library during our opening hours or at the entrance when it is manned. You can also return your loans by post to the address: Riksdagsbiblioteket100 12 Stockholm You must pay the postage charges yourself and are responsible for the book until it has been received by the Riksdag Library. It is not possible to return our books to other libraries.
