About the SLS Finna search service
SLS Finna is the search portal of the Society of Swedish Literature (SLS). In SLS Finna you can search the SLS archive’s main catalogue to discover digitized archival treasures, including manuscripts, letters, photographs, drawings, audio and video recordings, notes and maps. The portal currently gives access to more than 20,000 entries and more material is continuously added. SLS Library’s main catalogue is also searchable.
The SLS Finna search service only gives access to a fraction of the materials in the SLS Archive. Please visit our reading rooms for access to more digitized materials.
