About the library
The KTH Library consists of the libraries at KTH Campus and KTH Södertälje. Here you can read more about our organisation, our mission and goals. Here you'll also find more detailed information about the library for those who are extra interested.
The KTH Library supports the academic and digital skills of students and researchers. The library promotes open acess publishing and provides the university with analyses to help them make strategic decisions. The goal is to strengthen the quality of education and research, and to disseminate KTH’s research. The KTH Library is also a central meeting place, and an arena for collaboration.
KTH Library is divided into three main groups, each with a group manager: Operational support and development, Library services and learning support and Publication infrastructure and media.
Operational support and development includes Economy, IT and Systems, Library development, Library maintenance and facilities and Communication.
Library services and learning support is divided into four groups: Arena, Collections, Support and Teaching.
Publication infrastructure and media is divided into four groups: Bibliometrics, Research data, Media and Scholarly Publication.
The history of the library
The history of the library began as early as 1827 with the establishment of the Royal Institute of Technology. Since then, several transformative renovations and relocations have been undertaken, shaping the library into what it is today.
KTH Library has for a long time built up a solid collection of older and new literature, both books and online resources.
Exhibitions and collaborations
We regularly organize exhibitions, lectures, and other events to disseminate knowledge about the research conducted at KTH and its significance for society.
