WHEN SEARCHING LITERATURE
As a visitor, you get access to the library via the museum's study room, Faktarummet. Here you can study and copy pages from the books. However, we can not offer lending of literature.
You can also search the library catalog Web Search where currently almost half of our literature are included. Other literature is registered on manual catalog cards. Searches in the online catalog may therefore need to be complemented with a visit to the study room.
