This month’s issue of Informatie Professional is one for the road. The coverstory combines two of my favourite subjects: the national bibliography and Sweden. No wonder I enjoyed writing it so much.
The article is written in Dutch and describes the time I spent at Leufstabruk last year and the occasional visits to some of the other special collections in the area. Among the libraries on my list were the University Libraries of Lund and Uppsala, the Stiftbilioteken or diocesan libraries of Västerås and Strängnäs and the library of Skokloster Slott.
For more accounts of Dutch travelers in Sweden, particularly in the 19th century, see some of the earlier blog posts (in Dutch) about Johan Meerman, Everhardus Johannes Potgieter, Gerard Keller and Marcellus Emants.
