Study visits

Every year, the library receives a large number of visit requests, and we are obviously very pleased that so many people and organizations are interested in our activities and would like to visit us.


Study visits

We receive visitors from both Sweden and abroad and we usually offer meetings with members of the management team, employees, job shadowing and/or a tour of the premises, depending on the preferences and wishes of the visitors.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept all requests so we kindly ask you to provide a brief statement as to the purpose of your visit: 

  • How many people would like to visit the Library?
  • Which institution/university do you represent?
  • What part of our organization are you interested in?
  • How long would you like to visit us?
  • How flexible are you regarding the time and date of your visit?

Please send your request approximately a month before your desired visit date. Thank you for your interest in Stockholm University Library!

The Erasmus+ Partnership Program provides opportunities to collaborate with organisations in other European countries regarding different ways to develop the quality of education at all levels and in all areas.

As part of the Staff Mobility Program for training, you can participate in workplace training, i.e. job shadowing at Stockholm University Library. This means you follow a colleague and see how the colleague performs his or her work. You are thus not involved actively in any work.

The mobility period must be for at least two working days (excluding travel time) and typically lasts 2-5 days, but can be extended.

The administration is managed by your own institution. A "Mobility Agreement" must be set up by your institution at your request. Stockholm University Library must approve and sign your application before you proceed with your arrangements.

It is important that you agree with your own institution regarding costs of the exchange, in the event that they exceed the allocated grant, as well as whether or not you should receive subsistence allowance. Stockholm University Library does not provide additional allowance or accommodation.

As an Erasmus employee you are covered by the Group Insurance and Personal Insurance (GIF), signed by Stockholm University. You will also have business travel insurance through Kammarkollegiet, while you are staying at the university and during travel to and from the university. An insurance card will be provided by your institution.

Please state the following in your application:

  • Name and profession of the person who approved your visit
  • Name of your department/institution and university
  • The purpose of your visit (short summary)
  • Time of visit

We look forward to receiving your application!
