Slovenian Collections in the Library of Congress

Openly Available Digital Resources

In any guide to the Slovenian collections of the Library of Congress it is important to highlight digital resources. This section of the guide provides only a brief selection of freely available Slovenian sites that are more useful for reference and discovery, than deep dives into specific subjects. It is not an attempt to provide a comprehensive list of what can be found on the Internet. Subscription content from the Library of Congress is described on the page Onsite Only Electronic Resources.

The page is organized into the following sections:

  • Online Catalogs from Slovenian Libraries
  • Digital Collections Related to Slovenia
  • Slovenian Language Internet News Sites
  • English Language Sites on Slovenia
