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.
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
Map of Danderyd
and Stockholm, 1902.
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
of greater Stockholm, Norra Djurgården, 1921.
