We save all Swedish daily newspapers at the University Library. We also have electronic access to the majority of national and regional newspapers in Sweden.

Next to our newspaper sofa on the entrance floor you will find the latest week’s issues of Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet and Sydsvenskan.

How to find electronic newspapers

There are several databases that you can use for searching electronic newspapers:

  • Retriever Research (formerly Mediearkivet) with Swedish newspaper articles from the 1990s and onward. You need to be a student or employee in order to get access to this database from outside the University.
  • Digitzed Swedish daily newspapers contains a selection of older daily newspapers from the 1700s to the beginning of the 1900s.
  • Search Swedish newspapers which for instance contains Aftonbladet, Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens Nyheter and Expressen from the start to the present day.  Material younger than 115 years is copyright-protected, and you can only read it at the National Library.
  • Swedish American newspapers contains 28 Swedish American newspapers published across the United States between 1859 and 2007.
  • Safir: Daily newspapers has links to free daily newspaper archives.

You read most newspapers on microfilm

Because of the very poor durability of the paper, you have to read newspapers primarily on microfilm in the Microfilm Reading Room.
