Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At my alma mater as a lowly first year student I could:
  • browse the open collections which included recent journals, reference books and the recent phd thesises. (Actually this is accesible to the general public as no student card was required)
  • from the library catalogue order out any book or journal in the library (student card required). And for a reasonable fee make as many copies as I liked.
  • borrow and bring home any book printed after a certain year.

The accessability is worse when the library chooses to buy electronic books instead.

As a non-student I am limited to the pretty vast collective collections of the local libraries that can order any book from each other with a few days wait. So if any local library has it I can borrow it. Or I could just enroll in another university course. (Did I mention education is free in Sweden?).
