Changes in library service in Kista from 17 January

Published Nov 22, 2022

During spring 2023 the physical books in Kista will be moved to the main library at KTH Campus. Last day of borrowing books is 16 January, after that the library closes to prepare the move. The library's presence in Kista remains with teaching on site, and extensive digital support in the form of more literature online and librarians you can contact online or by phone.

The library in Kista will be open until 16 January 2023. 

The quiet reading room closes on 17 January and will open again when the move is completed, around April. The space will be used as a study environment after April, before renovations taking place during summer.

The reading studio is still open during the period.

The quiet reading room and reading studio may be moved after the summer.

No orders or requests can now be placed at the books in Kista. The books will not be available until the move is completed. You can't return books in Kista after 16 January, please use the main library at Osquars backe 31 to return books. 

The reason behind this is that the usage of the physical library has declined with few visits and questions per day. At the same time, The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) are going to develop Campus Kista and are planning to use the library space for other activities.

The subjects that the book collection in Kista covers are suitable to provide in electronic format since it is important to offer the latest editions. KTH Library has added to the electronical collection and will continue to keep it updated. The physical books will be moved from Kista to the main library. 

During the pandemics the digital services at KTH Library have been developed and consultations and seminars are now offered digital. Support is available by chat, phone or e-mail. KTH Library will keep being a part of programmes in Kista with offering teaching activites. 

A group with students and teachers from The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, together with representatives from KTH Library will work to make sure that all needs are being met. They will also find new areas for collaboration between the school and the library.
