Uppsala University Library is a treasure trove of books, manuscripts, maps and pictures.

N.B.: The Exhibition hall at Carolina Rediviva is closed for renovation until the middle of 2019. The Codex argenteus will not be on display during the renovation.

During this renovation, samples from the now closed exhibition at Carolina Rediviva is available in a temporary digital exhibition, for example the Carta Marina by Olaus Magnus, documents from medieval northern Europe, the Uppsala Eddan and Magnus Eriksson's National Law Code. Enjoy the map of Mexico City which was most likely painted by Aztecs during the period of the Spanish conquistadors. There are also temporary exhibitions on different themes in the different subject libraries.
