The Ibsen Centre Library
The Ibsen Centre has a large collection of books by and about Henrik Ibsen. The collection includes Ibsen’s works in the original and in translation and books about his life and work. The library is in Henrik Wergelands hus, room 213.
The collection contains Henrik Ibsen's works in Norwegian and in translations into many languages, in the case of English, German and French in several versions. We have important older works and recent books on his life and works, and of course Ibsen Studies and the other Ibsen journals. Our aim is to acquire new books as soon as they are published.
Articles in many languages on Ibsen's life and oeuvre and reviews of performances from Ibsen's day and up to the present are available for use at the Ibsen Centre.
In the reference collection are works on dramatic theory, literary analysis, philosophy and art as well as dictionaries and encyclopaedias, and some current periodicals. All of the materials in the collection may be consulted in the at the Ibsen Centre, but may not be taken out.
If you need help and guidance with using the Centre's library and resources, please do not hesitate to contact our librarian Marie Alming. This can be done by email or by stopping by her office (room HW 217) during her office hours.
All are welcome to visit us and use our library to read books and articles. Unfortunately, however, you may not bring the books home with you. There is access to a photocopier.
