Search

Our collections are searchable in our library catalogue ELSA and in Libris (the Swedish national union catalogue).

Children's and Youth Literature

Our children's and youth literature is searchable in our library catalogue. As the books are kept in closed stacks, they need to be requested and must be read on site in the library. Most of the books published since the year 2000, and all books published since 2005, are assigned subject headings from our children's subject headings list. These terms can be used when searching for children's and youth literature in the catalogue.

Theoretical Literature

The theoretical collection consists of approximately 19,000 volumes of books, journals, and essays on children's and youth literature and related topics. The theoretical texts are assigned subject headings from our subject headings list for theoretical literature. These terms can be used when searching for theoretical literature in the catalogue. 

Journals and Articles

The library subscribes to approximately 40 printed journals. Some of these are also available as e-journals for users visiting the library. Our catalogue also includes a number of open access e-journals that anyone can access. Articles and individual chapters in anthologies/collections on a particular topic can be found in our catalogue with the help of subject headings from our subject headings list for theoretical literature. 

You can also use the databases Artikelsök and Retriever to find articles. Artikelsök contains references to articles in Swedish newspapers and journals, and Retriever contains full-text versions of articles from a number of Swedish newspapers. Artikelsök and Retriever are only available for users visiting the library.
