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 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
MUBIL Project live
A new concept is introduced with the launching of 3D books by the NTNU University library, Gunnerus branch in Trondheim. The library has collaborated with Percro laboratory of Scuola Superiore de Santa Anna and has created a game and two prototypes of books where the content of the book is augmented with 3D pop ups, videos audios explanatory texts and becomes a rich virtual experience in an immersive environment! The users are invited to try out the book applications and experience a 3D environment in the library or invite Mubil at their venue! Schools are the main target group and in 2014 workshops will be organised.
Special type of materials, such as archives, manuscripts and rare books collection must be used in our Special collections reading room.
