Department Library

The Department of Invertebrate Zoology has a library with books, reprints and a few periodicals. Most of the literature is catalogued in a database.

Internal use


The library is primarily for internal use by the department and guest scientists.

Number of titles


Total number of titles in the file catalogue is about 85.000.
Turbellaria, Bryozoa, and Mollusca are especially well represented, thanks to donations by Tor G. Karling, Lars Silén and Hans Schlesch, respectively.

Stockholm University Library


For most library activities we have access to the nearby Stockholm University Library, formerly belonging to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences with excellent holdings until the time of the transfer (1978).
