The new database Library PressDisplay provides a full-color and full-page collection of more than 2200 newspapers from 97 countries in 54 languages.
In the library databases there is a link service indicating whether a book or article is available.
At the library we continuously work with digitization of and accessibility to our collections. This has been observed e.g. by SVT (Swedish Television), which featured the library's digital archives in the TV channel Västerbottensnytt.
Among 30 author portraits in original by artist Carl Köhler (1919-2006), are shown in an exhibition at the Umeå University Library December 3 - January 28.The exhibition also includes books from the library's collections related to the portraits.
We are currently adapting our website to the university's new graphic look.
