The Great Norwegian Encyclopedia (Norwegian: Store Norske Leksikon, abbreviated SNL), is a Norwegian-language online encyclopedia. The online encyclopedia is among the most-read Norwegian published sites, with more than two million unique visitors per month. The SNL was created in 1978, when the two publishing houses Aschehoug and Gyldendal merged their encyclopedias and created the company Kunnskapsforlaget. Up until 1978 the two publishing houses of Aschehoug and Gyldendal, Norway's two largest, had published Aschehougs konversasjonsleksikon  and Gyldendals konversasjonsleksikon , respectively. The respective first editions were published in 1907–1913 (Aschehoug) and 1933–1934 (Gyldendal). More information...

The website is placed before and after in the BestRef global ranking of the most important sources of Wikipedia.
