After being closed during the spring, the Hagströmer Library has opened for certain public activities during the autumn of 2020, of course observing the prevailing infection control recommendations. We offer face masks, disposable gloves and hand sanitizer to all visitors. All bookings are made via:

Library viewings in Tingshuset. During the autumn, we accept a limited number of pre-booked groups of up to a maximum of 10 people. Contact us for information.

Reading room opening hours. During the autumn of 2020, the reading room is only open for pre-arranged visits. We want to advise that we may have to say no to visitors on occasion as the space in the reading room is limited.

Booking of conference rooms in Haga Tingshus. Groups from Karolinska Institutet can, as usual, book floor 4 for workshops or mini-conferences to the extent that we have staff who can receive and see out. However, the number of participants is limited to 10 because there are limitiations in the house that make it impossible for larger groups to keep sufficient distances.

Exhibitions in the Library. This spring's standing exhibition with rare books in botany, pharmacy art and surgery selected by Ove Hagelin will remain during the autumn.

Lectures and Presentations. No public lectures will be held in Haga Tingshus during Autumn 2020.
