National Library of Sweden

The canonical archive for Swedish language print and video material. From wikipedia, publishers of print material are required to send copies to this archive. Websites and video recordings are also collected.

The first step for academic publishing is to go through the library of the hosting institution, and from there the archive is entered into SwePub. For the University of Gothenburg, entry is a two part process consisting of

  • Full text and metadata: Gothenburg University Publications Electronic Archive GUPEA
  • Bibliographic text and metadata: GUP

An example of metadata for an academic item is this doctoral thesis. Of particular interest are the keywords associated with this, useful as electronic publishing metadata tags or as the substratum for a larger tagging taxonomy.
