The National Library

1900th century building in a park
The library in the park Humlegården in central Stockholm

The National Library of Sweden has been collecting virtually everything printed in Sweden or in Swedish since 1661. We also collect TV and radio programs, movies and videos distributed in Sweden, Swedish music and computer games.

Our collections can be accessed by visiting the library or in certain cases through online services.

The National Library is a humanities research library that purchases scholarly publications in several languages. We coordinate services and programs for all publically funded libraries in Sweden and administer and develop Libris, the national library catalog system.

The National Library of Sweden is a state agency. We are a staff of about 400 and our main offices are in Stockholm.
