The library provides fast, innovative and relevant scientific communication services that contribute to Stockholm University's world-class research and teaching. We contribute to an open, up-to-date national and international infrastructure with digital solutions and services.

We are also actively involved in national and international analyses of and discussions about the role and focus of research libraries in a changing information society. An issue that we are currently focused on is open research and management, storage and research accessibility.

Several of our employees are members of various advisory boards at other publishing houses, universities and libraries.

Our head librarian is a member of the board of the publishing house Liber and several of our employees participate in different committees.
