The public library system is intended to promote the development of democratic society by contributing to the dissemination of knowledge and the free formation of opinion. A library should also be a meeting place that promotes democratic dialogue and fosters the ability to select information and engage in critical analysis and source criticism. The Government intends to instruct the National Library of Sweden to draft a strategy to promote cooperation and quality development throughout the Swedish library system. This task will also include continuing the work of making eBooks available via the national Libris catalogue. SEK 5 million will be allocated for this purpose in 2015. The allocation is projected to increase to SEK 6 million per year in 2016–2018.
