The Gunnerus library is the oldest scientific library in Norway, and dates back to 1768 when it was the library of the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters. The library focuses especially on the academic fields of archaeology, botany and zoology, but is also a general scientific library, and is open to all public.
The Gunnerus library offers:
- a 5 -7 times daily delivery service of general collection material. Material printed before the year 1900 must be used at our library premises and cannot be taken home.
- stimulating and varied working environments, including private rooms for group work, a study room for researchers (must be agreed with the reception) and a large reading room for traditional studying
- copying facilities
- skilled, friendly staff
The project will develop a virtual learning space within the physical space of the library through an international collaboration using a 3 dimensional software tool. A demo version will be presented here in the library autumn of 2012.
Special type of materials, such as archives, manuscripts and rare books collection must be used in our Special collections reading room.
Please note that you need to order the material you need at least 24 hours before your visit to the reading room. Please request the material through Special Collections.
