The Library in numbers

Did you know that the Library was open 68 hours a week and made available 105 paid databases in 2015?


At the beginning of every year, we compile statistics relating to library activities in the previous year and report it to the Royal Library. It is the responsibility of all publicly funded libraries to do so, and contribute to Sweden's official library statistics.

We have just completed the collection of statistical data for 2015. Here a small selection from the statistics for 2015:

  • Opening hours/week: 68
  • Seats, total number: 709
  • Public access computers: 205
  • Visitors (per year): 294 754
  • Website visitors (by IP visits): 175 108
  • Print journals: 347
  • Electronic journals: 43 900
  • Searches in Summon: 786 072
