Arken - The National Library of Sweden's search service for private archives, manuscripts and selected special collections
Use this catalogue to find information about the private archives, manuscripts and selected special collections that we hold at the National Library of Sweden. The collection's creators range from writers, artists and scientists to associations, organizations and families.
Arken becomes home to more NLS-collections
Since the launch in the spring of 2018, Arken has been a search-service for NLS's manuscripts collections. Starting in the fall of 2019 work will begin with adding other NLS-collections to Arken.
Note that Arkens layout and information on the help pages might change during the project.
