Nobel Prize exhibition - Selma Lagerlöf
On the occasion of the Nobel Prize ceremony we pay tribute to the first woman to be awarded the Nobel Price in Literature in 1909, Swedish author Selma Lagerlöf.
The anniversary exhibition highlights how its large and unique collections found their way to the library through required legal deposit copies, donations and other means, and how the Library's locations have changed over the past 400 years from damp facilities near Uppsala Cathedral to today's physical and digital environments.
A digital exhibition on the first fashion magazine published in Sweden.
The exhibition is made by Celicia Widell and Daniel Rönnegård, students at the History Department, Uppsala University, during an internship at Uppsala University Library.
In Swedish only.
Uppsala University Library has a gift shop that is located next to the entrance hall at Carolina Rediviva. Here you find a variety of books, posters, gift wraps and a large amount of postcards.
Here you also find items such as notebooks, trays, coasters, ecolabelled bags, CDs, jewellery and cleaning cloths for glasses, mobile phones or tablets.
Themes for all products in the shop are taken from our rich collections of manuscripts, music scores, maps, images and printed materials. Currently, a few products are available for sale online: reproductions of two of the university's most famous treasures; Carta Marina and the Mexico map.
