About NTNU University Library

NTNU University Library is a public scientific library, established in 1996 in connection with the establishment of NTNU. The library, however, has roots back to the library of the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters from 1768 and is thus Norway’s oldest scientific library.

NTNU University Library has a total of 17 branch libraries in Trondheim, Ålesund and Gjøvik. The main mission of the library is to support research and teaching at the university. Our primary users are students and employees at NTNU, but people without an NTNU affiliation can also borrow from the library's collections.
