Scandinavian Links: User’s Guide

User’s Guide to Scandinavian Links


I have kept all the Scandinavian Links on one long page so that you can use your browser’s “Find” button to search for a keyword that may occur in several countries’ sections. But I would like to get feedback from all visitors about this arrangement. With one long page, the loading time will in most cases range from 20 seconds to 1.5 minutes, but once the page is loaded, you will be able to move quickly to any section and to search the whole page at once. If you will have occasion to use the links page frequently, you can always save it to your hard disk and then point your browser at it (file:///[path]). It will load in a snap. You can re-visit my site from time to time and save an updated version.

My alternative to the single-page set-up is to break up the links into separate pages by country/region. There would be eleven shorter pages, so each page would load fairly quickly, and I could put a table of contents with links in a narrow frame at the left. But to search the whole collection of links, you would have to do the search eleven times. Please let me know if you typically visit the page to find something in a given country or to search the links for several countries (or the whole region); by all means say which sort of set-up you would prefer.

Even within a single country’s listings, it is a good idea to use your browser’s Find button, since the categories are approximate: e.g., a site that lists concerts may be in the Tourism category, while the site of a particular music festival may be under Arts. For the benefit of those who do not read Nordic languages, I have tried to include English translations of most of the site titles that are not in English. Many of the sites have English-language pages available once you get there, even if I have not supplied a separate link to an English version.

Under each country or region you will find the following categories:

Please note the following details about the organization of the page:
