Stockholm University Library has large collections of maps which are available in the Geolibrary and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' collection of books (KVAB). The Geolibrary map collection originated from the geological and geographical branch libraries which were merged in 1997.

Printed maps

The Geolibrary has Swedish map series from the mid-19th century until today. These include maps from the Geological Survey of Sweden (SGU) and economic maps - the district maps that were published from the 1860s until the 1920s. There are also economic maps on a scale of 1:10000 from the years 1935-1978. A large number of loose maps, both foreign and Swedish, are also located in the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' collection of books.

The University Library's collections contain a large number of atlases from the 17th century onwards. These include the famous Atlas Major world atlas, published by Joan Blaeu in eleven large folio volumes, which was completed in 1665.

Some of the map materials are searchable in the library catalogue and in the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' scanned catalogue. In addition to these maps, you will also find many maps as attachments of books and journals.

Some of the library's maps have been scanned and are available in the Map room. Also located here is information on digital maps and geodata, with both freely available resources and resources which can only be accessed by lecturers, researchers and students at Stockholm University.
