Libris is the national search service (the union catalog for all Swedish research libraries). It contains records on more than eight million books and periodicals held by around 400 Swedish research and special libraries. The catalog contains information about printed books, periodicals, articles, maps, printed music, posters, electronic resources, and more. Almost all Swedish titles since 1866 and many foreign titles are included.

You cannot request materials in Libris, but you can see what the libraries have. Once you have found a title in Libris, you can click a direct link to Regina or other libraries' online catalogs and make your request there.
