In LIBRIS you cannot buy or borrow a book, but we provide guidance as to how you can obtain the material in question in full text, or through local or interlibrary loans.
Some of the material in LIBRIS is available in full text. Certain documents in full text are freely accessible by all, while access to others requires you to own a library card from a library with a licence to show full-text documents. We try to show clearly when you have to belong to a certain library (e.g. only for users at …).
Sometimes you can obtain a "full view" of the material sought for in Google BookSearch. You can use, for example, the "Search outside LIBRIS" link on the title-information page.
It is often possible to order a book directly on the Web. Around twenty libraries allow users to make orders directly by filling in a form in LIBRIS (LIBRIS Customer Orders).
Many libraries offer the possibility of ordering material on the Web through their Web site or their online catalogue. Several libraries provide instructions on this in Libris when you click on the "Interlibrary loan" link under the "Find" tab, when you have selected your favourite library.
If the book in question is out on loan or is not owned by your library, you can see if another edition of the book is owned by the library. Under the “Other editions” tab in the title information page, you can find editions published in other years, in other languages, or as electronic resources.
