How to request government publications
You will find commissions of inquiries, reports and other documents published separately in the Lovisa catalogue. Documents included among parliamentary publications (such as bills, motions and committee reports) on the mezzanine floor are for in-house use in the library. You can request older parliamentary publications (1867–2001/2002) for regular loans. Search under "Riksdagstryck” (parliamentary publications) as a title in Lovisa.
