History

The project was born in 1980, when a government committee suggested that negotiations be initiated with various publishers. This stage was finished in August 1985, when Bra Böcker [sv] in Höganäs became the publisher responsible for the project. The project specifications were for a modern reference work based on a scientific paradigm incorporating gender and environmental issues.

Pre-orders for the work were unprecedented; before the first volume was published in December 1989, 54,000 customers had ordered the encyclopedia. The last volume came out in 1996, with three supplemental volumes in 2000.

Associated with the Nationalencyklopedin project are also:

  • NE:s Ordbok, a dictionary in three volumes (1995–1996)
  • NE:s Årsband, complementary volumes concerning current events and fast changing information distributed annually since 1997
  • NE:s Sverigeatlas, an atlas of Sweden (1998)
  • NE:s Världsatlas, a world atlas (1998)
  • NE-spelet, a quiz game with 8,000 questions (1999)

In 1997, the first digital form of the encyclopedia was released on 6 CD-ROMs (later on DVD as well), and in 2000 as an Internet subscription service. The online version contains the dictionary as well as an updated version of the original encyclopedia. It has 356,000 entries, 183,000 of which are encyclopedic articles. The service has been completed with several features not available in the printed version, such as a Swedish–English dictionary.
