bokselskap.no is developed by The Norwegian Literature and Language Association (Det norske språk- og litteraturselskap (NSL)) in co-operation with Henrik Ibsen’s Writings (HIS), The University of Oslo, the Norwegian Folk- and Popular Song Archives and The National Library of Norway. The web site will secure future generations access to literature that is worthy of conservation through a library of digital books.
The web site includes, in addition to the digital books, a timeline, author biographies and introductions. We want to make the texts available for modern readers. Information about authors and literary periods are adapted to suit both pupils and students/researchers.
We use internationally recognized standards and software that is available free of charge as well as software that has an open source code in our work.
The web site is built using WordPress
The timeline is a Simile Widgets Timeline.
The Norwegian Literature and Language Association (NSL) publishes texts that are particularly valuable for Norwegian language, literature and cultural history. The association has approximately 60 members who all have an interest in preserving historical texts and in making them available in print and/or online. The texts are scholarly edited and presented with introductions and commentaries. » NSL’s home page
