Great Norwegian Encyclopedia

The Great Norwegian Encyclopedia, in Norwegian Store norske leksikon (abbreviated as ‘SNL’), is an edited, online encyclopedia.

In 2009 the encyclopedia went from something most Norwegian households had on their shelves to a free web based encyclopedia. Fritt Ord and The DNB Savings Bank Foundation Sparebankstiftelsen DNB initiated the countinuation of the SNL, Store medisinske leksikon – The Great Medical Encyclopedia, Norsk biografisk leksikon – The Norwegian Biographical Encyclopedia and Norsk kunstnerleksikon – The Encyclopedia of Norwegian Artists.

The encyclopedia contains a collection of approximately 200 000 articles, some of which have a history of revision going back to encyclopedic work published in 1906.
