Open Access Longitudinal Databases

The databases published by LiU E-Press are essentially longitudinal databases for research. Other types of databases may occur with cultural or social information value. If you have a database with content that favors different types of research, which you want to be available at no cost via LiU E-Press, please contact ep@ep.liu.se.

Database of Fines for LinkÖping (1800-1900) and NorrkÖping (1832-1894)
Before and after the punishment law of 1734 there were in principle two types of punishment in Sweden: fines and death penalty. Fines could also be substituted with prison or corporal punishment. If a person could not pay a fine, then they were often whipped or put in prison on bread and water.

The database is only available in Swedish.

GÖta and TrollhÄtte Canal Bibliographic Database
The Göta and Trollhätte canals’ bibliogaphical database contains publications from scientific and general journals, literature, chapters in books, travel descriptions, investigations, reflections, governmental reports, newspaper articles and some 50 map references. Common in all of the above is that they all relate in some way to Göta or Trollhätte canal (although references to Göta canal dominate).
Hospital Records for the County Hospital of ÖstergÖtland
The first provincial hospital was built in Östergötland in 1777 in Linköping. The hospital was built on the original medieval hospital’s site. The building is still present, squeezed between modern apartment buildings. A permanent hospital was opened in 1848 in the old military barracks.
Medical History Database
The medical history database currently contains just over 11,000 documents. In total, they cover a period of almost 100 years. The database contains Inspectors' reports (Asyl o Hospital), Health Care Committee's minutes, Annual reports from hospitals, Medikolegala (autopsy) reports, Medicinal Agency's protocol, Surveillance Authority's annual reports on mental health care and Annual reports from the provincial doctor, covering the period 1814-1916. The material is presented with a brief historical review of the material as well as a description of the archive material itself with the archive list.
Mine Workers’ Court Records for Åtvidaberg, ÖstergÖtland
Database of the Åtvidaberg section of the mountain rail protocol covering the years 1788-1851. A Bergsting session was held once a year, usually in May or June and was announced via the churches at least 10 weeks before the meeting. Legal issues included supervising the operation of a mine and mine mills, judging in different disputes between the workers, fiddling with weighing of ore, payments, thefts etc. Greater legal matters such as man slaughter or dispute about proprietorship to forests used by the mines was handled by the ordinary court such as Häradsrätt.
Norrköping's Police Authority Database
The register digitized served as a kind of police intelligence. When a detainee was released, the data of the prisoner was sent to the various police districts so that they could keep the prisoner under surveillance. The main register consists of a main record and a portrait scroll. What has been recorded is Norrköping's Polish Authority scroll with information derived from the main roll and the portrait roll. The registry contains photographs of prisoners, making it a unique time document because photography was fairly new at this time.
Prison Records of Linköping’s Remand Prison, Norrköping’s Prison and Spinning House
Prison records from Linköping’s Remand Prison 1806-1892, Norrköping’s Prison 1826-1886 and Spinning House 1814-1920. The material is a list of the prisoners investigated and detained at the Crown Fence housed in Linköping Central Prison or Cell Prison, as it was also called or detained at Norrköping Prison Office and Norrköping Spinnhus. This includes also the so-called transport criminals transported from prison to another with overnight stay in Linköping for further transportation the next day.
Soldier's Register (Centrala Soldatregistret)
The Soldier’s register is a national database freely available for all with an Internet connection (Open Access). All registering is done on a none-profit base by associations or private persons around Sweden. This registering is combined to the national register to make it possible to search everything at once.

The database comprises The Younger Allotment System with soldiers enlisted between 1682 and 1901.

swedish Government Official reports (SOU)

The Swedish Government Official Reports (SOU) is a series of reports from the Swedish government and the first report was published in 1922. The material consists of the Royal Library's (KB) scanned SOUs from 1922 to 1996 and the Riksdag's open data from 1997 to the latest for the year. KB's constituent covering the period from 1922 to 1996 is OCR-treated and contains some interpretation errors that may adversely affect search results. The data from the Parliament also contains a smaller number of errors, which means that some SOU content is not searchable.
