Located on the third floor (F3) of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the Nobel Section comprises the works of Nobel Prize laureates in literature from 1901 to the present. The Nobel Section consists of the Nobel Room, the Gad Rausing Auditorium, and the Söderberg Lounge.
The furniture of the Nobel Section was designed by famous Swedish designers, such as Åke Axelsson and Erik Gunnar Asplund. In the Nobel Room, there is a large meeting table made of alder root and cherry wood, which is similar to the table in the Assembly Hall of the Nobel Forum in Stockholm. Another special attraction is the Proverb Rug by
Märta Måås-Fjätterström, which has a part from the Hávamál , a nordic mythology poem, written on it.
The Nobel Section was inaugurated by Queen Silvia of Sweden and Queen Sonja of Norway on 24 April 2002. It was financed by the Swedish families Rausing and Söderberg.
