Visit the newly installed materials library and get acquainted with new, exciting materials.
The materials library consists of samples of new and innovative materials that are displayed on specially designed shelves in the library's periodicals room.
At the moment, the collection contains 120 material samples, but will expand with 15 new samples every three months. To this physical collection there is also the database Material Connexion with over 7,000 types of materials.
- It's our wish and hope that these samples and the database can be used in education, research and in the collaboration with the surronding society, says Mattias Lorentzi, acting library director.
The materials library is a collaboration between the University Library and the School of Engineering.
