  • Project Runeberg is a Swedish-centered, volunteer-based project that offers in HTML format more than 200 original-language classic works of Nordic literature, music, and the history of science, plus selected texts in Swedish law and in other disciplines. Works represent Sweden (the bulk of the offerings thus far), Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland. The site also provides biographical information and links to additional reading, to other text sites, and to other electronic text projects. This is a large and complex site under continuous development. The home page lists additions year by year, but better access is provided through the subject (tema) index and through the alphabetical list of offerings. There is also an author/title search page with links at the bottom to the online catalogs of the Swedish, Danish, and Finnish national libraries and to the Norwegian universities union catalog (BIBSYS).

  • Icelandic Online Dictionary and Readings is a free-access, Web-based resource developed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison which complements the University of Iceland's Internet course Icelandic Online and was developed side by side with it. The project as a whole consists of three parts: 1) Interactive lessons and exercises, equivalent to a one-semester, 3-credit University course in Beginning Modern Icelandic. 2) The unabridged content of the highly regarded 1989 Iðunn Íslensk-ensk orðabók (Concise Icelandic-English Dictionary), updated and expanded by one of the original editors, and incorporating the rich set of morphological data developed by Dictionary of the University of Iceland. 3) A set of readings in modern Icelandic life, literature and culture, selected to exemplify varying types of discourse and levels of difficulty.
