The Library

The library provides opportunities for visitors of all ages to learn about postal history and stamps with the aid of the library, computers and stamp collections from Sweden and other Nordic countries.

Here you can find everything from databases, multimedia and Internet to books, pictures and maps. The library has a large collection of literature on philately and postal history.

Three multimedia programmes have been produced by the Museum in order to provide attractive and informative descriptions of postal history and stamp collecting. Other multimedia programmes show postage stamps from different parts of the world.

The computers in the library can search the Museum's databases, which contain visual material and descriptions of objects, historical pictures and letters, together with 25,000 photographs, prints, drawings and paintings. A special computerised library catalogue is available and can retrieve nearly 40,000 titles.

The philatelic library is one of the biggest of its kind in the world, and Sweden's only public library specializing in philately and postal history.

The library was founded in 1944 through the acquisition of Nils Strandell's philatelic library of 15,000 volumes. The library is constantly growing through acquisitions and donations of literature on philately and postal history from all parts of the world.

The library consists of more than 51,000 volumes including general handbooks, monographs and catalogues. There are also periodicals. The library subscribes to 180 journals from all over the world.

The library offers ample space, where both individual researchers and groups can study their own special field, using catalogues (in book form or multimedia), reference literature and the Internet.
