This workshop is cancelled.

The focus will be on the older book collection and how to search the older catalogues. We will also visit the rare books collection where some of the books are displayed.

Time: Fri 2022-11-18 10.00 - 12.00

Location: Biblioteket - Anmälan krävs

Language: Swedish

Lecturer: Piah Carlsson, KTH Library

The KTH Library has existed for almost 200 years. It is not only purchases that have made the collections grow, sometimes entire libraries have moved in, for example from businesses that have closed down.

Piah will briefly tell you about some of our special collections (for example the Byggdok collection and the Collection in Energy and Nuclear Technology). The focus will be on the older book collection and how to search the older catalogues. We will also visit the rare books collection where some of the books are displayed. For reasons of space and security, we will allow a limited number of participants.  

The target audience for the workshop is researchers and doctoral students- Please note that this presentation is held in Swedish. If you are interested in our special collections, but don't understand Swedish, contact us at biblioteket@kth.se and we will arrange a presentation for you.
