About the library

The Physics Library provides resources and services to students and staff of the Department of Physics, the Division of Medical Radiation Physics, the MAX IV Laboratory, and to library users from outside the university.

The Physics Library specialises in all areas of physics. We also have a small collection of literature about gender perspectives in physics and a collection of novels, poems, and children’s books with a connection to physics. We also have general interest books on topics such as the history of science, popular science, and study techniques. For example, you can read up on how to structure a thesis or write an article.

The library provides access to digital and hard copy resources and databases. We also offer support and guidance in information retrieval, reference management, and scientific publishing.

The Physics Library has a quiet study area.
