LIBRIS is a national search service providing information on titles held by Swedish university and research libraries, as well as about twenty public libraries. Here you can find books, periodicals, articles, maps, posters, printed music, electronic resources, etc.
The National Library of Sweden is responsible for the operation and development of this online search service.
LIBRIS is the joint catalogue of the Swedish academic and research libraries and is updated on a daily basis. The libraries providing cataloguing input all contribute jointly to building up the database contents. At present the LIBRIS database contains 6.5 million titles.
In any hit list you can see the title, author, year of publication, etc., and often you are provided with additional information such as tables of contents, summaries, illustrations and links to full-text documents.
You can see which libraries hold the title which you are interested in, and whether the title is available for loan or as a full-text document on the Internet. You cannot buy books, periodicals etc. through LIBRIS, but rather through a bookshop.
