KTH Library – guide for students

Are you a new student at KTH? Or have you already been here for a while but not really discovered what services the library can provide? Engineering studies are both exciting and challenging and throughout your studies you will be in need of finding good, relevant literature and information. The library gives you access to the materials you need and the library staff is trained to guide you to the right sources.
