The Nordic co-operation is one of the world's most extensive forms of regional collaboration involving Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Aland. These countries together form the Nordic regions - Norden - which comprises approximately 26 million people. Combined, the GDPs of these countries make the region's economy the 12th largest in the world. The parliamentary co-operation in the region began in 1952 and was expanded in 1971 with the body for intergovernmental co-operation, the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Every year approximately 100 new Nordic titles are published, approximately 65% of which are in English. These publications are now available online in a single research repository using the renowned iLibrary platform that was developed by the OECD. Subscribers to both subscriptions are able to perform searches through the two collections simultaneously.
The Norden iLibrary was launched last year and as of the end of October 2015, there were more than 800 publications available in READ and PDF formats going back to 2005. In terms of topics covered, the collection includes titles covering agriculture and food (120+), development (70+), economics (50+), education (70+), employment (90+), environment (400+), governance (120+), industry and services (90+), social affairs, migration and health (180+), trade (70+) and others in science and technology, energy, transport, finance and investment, and urban, rural and regional development.
