Open with social distancing

KTH Library have taken several measures to help reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19. 

  • We have reduced the number of seats in the library
  • We offer hand sanitizers in various locations
  • We have extended our online support

Please help us and follow the Public Health Agency’s guidelines! Most importantly: wash your hands, stay at home when you’re sick, and keep your distance to other people.

If you feel unsafe, or if you see anything we can improve for the wellbeing of our visitors, don’t hesitate to let us know.

Activate your library account

The first thing to do as a new student is to activate your library account. Use your library account to borrow books and access all our electronic resources.

Find study places and book group study rooms

At KTH Library there are several study spaces, both individual tables and group areas. You will also find stationary computers, printers and scanners. As a KTH student you can also book one of our 15 group study rooms. Please note that under current circumstances there is a maximum capacity of four people per room.

Rent lockers or book storage cabinets

In the autumn of 2020 no lockers will be rented out for the whole semester, but storage cabinets can be booked for the day. The storage cabinets are located at the Main library in the locker room on the first floor. You get the key from the information desk with your library account.

Book a consultation or teaching activity

If you need help with information retrieval, writing or reference management, you can book a tutorial with us. We also offer teaching activities and open seminars.

Attend our open lectures and seminars via Zoom

Each semester, the KTH Library offers several different lectures and seminars in everything from reference management and rhetoric to popular science lectures. This semester all events are online via Zoom.

Use the speech synthesis program TorTalk

All students at KTH get free access to TorTalk on their computer. TorTalk reads digital texts out loud. It is a great aid for those with reading difficulties, as well as those who prefer to read and listen at the same time.
