LIBRIS is a national search service with information on titles in Swedish university, college and research libraries and some twenty public libraries. There are books, journals, articles, maps, posters, sheet music, electronic resources, etc.

The database of bibliographic information is available via several APIs, and in multiple formats. The conceptual model is based on international open standards. Through RDF / XML the LIBRIS database is also moving towards becoming part of the Semantic Web.

Propositioner och Skrivelser

This database contains all the government bills and letters since 1971. For older records (1993/94 and earlier), the material is scanned and OCR processed, made available in PDF and HTML format. Material between 1994/95 and 2001/02 are only in plain text format where formatting information in the printed material has been lost. From 2002/03 there are bills in PDF format, created directly from original material in digital form. These documents are public domain under Swedish law except for maps etc. contained in these documents.

Statutes, SFS

The database contains all the provisions contained in the Swedish Code of Statutes, SFS, the consolidated full-text and bibliographic information. Rules and laws in force in 1986 and any changes since then are available (it also means anything no longer in force because lifted after 1986 is still available as historic information).
