About the Dag Hammarskjöld and Law Library

The Dag Hammarskjöld and Law Library is one of several libraries that together make up the Uppsala University Library. The legal part of the library is a reference library with a large selection of Swedish and foreign legal books, official publications and journals. In addition the Library has a special collection of material from the European Union, the European Council and the UN. 

The library’s resources also include a large number of electronic journals and databases that can be accessed by the students from their UpUnet-S accounts from home, through the library’s computers or through their own computers at the library. (Password A)

Service to students and researchers

Besides giving advice and guidance the library staff offers courses in information searches for students, doctoral students and researchers. During certain semesters of the law programme, library courses are part of the curriculum. Semester 1 students are given a general introduction in how to search for legal sources, while during later semesters the focus is on European law and international material.

There is also a possibility for students doing their thesis work to book individual guidance to get a review of how to search for information specifically tailored to the topic of the thesis.

Reading areas and group study rooms

The library has about 200 reading spaces. For group studies there are group study rooms at the location Munken, Department of Law. In addition, it is possible to use reading spaces and group study areas at Carolina Rediviva and other subject libraries.

Copying, printing and computers

Photocopiers for copies and print-outs are available at the library, as well as computers for information searches. Searches of the library catalogues can be done from some of the computers. It is also possible to copy and print outside the library from photocopiers connected to eduPrint. A wireless local-area network for Internet access is available and many of the reading spaces have power outlets for computers.
