The Stefansson Institute Arctic Library




The Institute has a small but growing library (see complete collection) specialising in arctic issues with an emphasis on communities and sustainable development. The library is above all intended for the SAI staff and its visiting scholars, but is also open to other interested who can, with special permission, borrow books and other material.
