Short Description:

Karolinska Institutet University Library (KIB) is the largest medical library in Sweden. The library comprises of two library units and a network of computerised services.The library is organised in teams, and the staff, comprising of 130, is divided into 10 teams with a team leader each. All the team leaders are part of the library executive board.

Our customers
The library services are primarily targeted at the students, researchers, teachers and staff at the Karolinska Institutet. The library is open to any person needing our collections or the competence of our staff. Companies and organisations are offered tailor-made library services for a fee.

National resource library
KIB is also a national resource library for medicine, including dental science, nursing science and health care. As a national resource library we are responsible for developing medical librarianship in Sweden. To ensure this the library is working on several projects each year, financed by BIBSAM, the Royal Library´s Department for National Co-ordination and Development. KIB also arranges courses, workshops and conferences targeted at medical librarians in Sweden.

Development activities
The library is also involved in a great number of projects [in Swedish only], in both traditional library work and within completely new areas. Contract work is increasing, especially on web projects, and the library has started its own web agency Vision.
