Scandinavian Links

Scandinavian Links

nordic region







This page has links to the entire Nordic region arranged by country and, under each country, by several categories. You will be able to use the page with greater ease and less frustration if you read the User’s Guide. “Scandinavian” and “Nordic” are used as synonyms here; I happen to prefer the former.
I apologize for the many dead links; I have not had time to maintain the page. For any link that is dead, you can try entering the name of the resource you are trying to reach in Google or Ixquick and getting to it that way.
Please visit my home page if you haven’t just come from there; you’ll find information about the poetry and fiction I’ve translated from Scandinavian languages.

If you are looking for BOOKS or CDs from Scandinavia, go to “Whole Nordic Region” and for CDs click on “Arts”; for BOOKS click on “Publishers, Bookstores, Books, Journals.” Also see those categories under the various countries.
