New name for the Main Library


Category : Nyheter

As of 1 February 2015, Stockholm University Library's main building in Frescati has changed name to Frescati Library.

The name replaces the old name "Main Library". At the same time, the library’s smaller localized libraries, formerly called "branches", have changed name and are now called units. The reason for the name change is the need for a new name for a uniform approach where the activities of the library have the same orientation regardless of location.

The designation Main Library will be replaced gradually in all places where it occurs: on the web, in print, in the library catalogue, in the library's circulation system, SUKAT and SU's app.

The name Frescati Library was selected by library staff and approved by the library management, library board and the principal. The name is linked to the campus and has so far been well received by the library visitors.
