Special collections

The Library’s special collections include Ejnar Fors Bergström’s Faroe Islands collection, the GDR Culture Centre Library, and the Fröbel Institute Library. Also among the special collections are Swedish Academy member Elias Wessén’s book collection in linguistics, and author Sven Stolpe’s collection of French and German fiction.

A series of special collections has been bestowed, deposited or acquired by Linköping University Library. Some of them are placed separately, but the majority are integrated into the general book collection. 

Below, you can find out what material individual special collections contain. The descriptions also include information about the location and search options for each special collection. With a few exceptions, the Library’s special collections are searchable in the search service UniSearch and in the national library catalogue Libris.
