new acquisitions

We just purchased some Swedish digital materials on CD and DVD (from Stockholms Stadsarkiv) to use in some upcoming classes and for work we are doing on historical sources in an educational context.


I have always liked Söderskivan (about the southern part of Stockholm – a district – between 1870 and 1930). It has an innovative and accessible interface and it encourages exploration drawing on rich demographic and historical materials. Now there are several other products about other parts of Stockholm. If you are interested in just trying these products out, talking to us about them, using them for your work/paper, or possibly writing a critical paper, please contact Stefan Gelfgren at
