SND provides access to several special collections that are the results of various projects to digitise materials that are deemed of interest for research. These projects have been made possible through external funding.
Our Special Collections
The foundation to the collection of Swedish party programmes and election manifestos comes from the project Vi vill....! Hundra år av partipolitiska viljeyttringar (We want…! A hundred years of political party declarations). The project was conducted by the predecessor of SND, Svensk samhällsvetenskaplig datatjänst (SSD), during 2000–2002, and funded by a Riksbankens Jubileumsfond Infrastructure for Research grant.
Another collection that was donated to SSD in the 1980s is the Swedish Gallup Institute’s surveys from 1942–1956. The material was made accessible as part of the project "Vad tyckte de i folkhemmet? – digitalisering och tillgängliggörande av Svenska Gallups undersökningar 1942–1956” (What did they think in the Swedish ”people’s home”? – making the Gallup surveys 1942–1956 digitised and accessible), carried out at SND 2012–2013. The scans were made by the Digital Services department in the Gothenburg University Library.
