The Center for History of Science is a reference library with focus on history of science and history of scientific instruments. The books are catalogued in the Swedish national library database LIBRIS. The library is intended for staff and visiting researchers. You can’t borrow books as a private person and inter-library loans are only granted as an exception to the rule. However, if you want to read the books you are welcome to do so at the Center.
Older collections of books
Until 1978 the RSAS had its own library within the building, but when Stockholm University was created most of the Academy’s books were transferred to the University’s library. The RSAS’ collection of rare books printed prior to 1800 is deposited at the Stockholm University library.
