Welcome to the library at IRF

The library at IRF in Kiruna is focused on space plasma physics and atmospheric physics. The library is open to IRF’s employees and may be used as a reference library by others on the Space Campus. 

The online catalogue can be accessed at: http://www.irf.se/link/webopac

At present the library has some 7 000 books registered in the library catalogue, the majority of them in the areas of space, physics and computing.
