Dear Sir! I wonder about inheritance rules for digital contents(Email, Blog, Homepage for social networking, Game avatar etc) If someone die in a sudden, He or… 912 29.9.2010 Dear Sir According to the [Finnish) Copyright Act (404/1961) Anyone who has created a literary or artistic work has a copyright for his/her work (in section 1). (The work can be e.g. in digital form or the work can be published on the web, but it has to be a work.

After the death of the author the copyright is applicable to matrimonial law, wills and succession rules.

I need some materials about budgetary institutions accounting. If you have this kind of materials I would need their names, so I could borrow them. (I have to… 441 27.9.2010 Unfortunately, your question is so special, that you should obviously contact one or several special libraries. The libraries that come to mind in first order are the Library of Parliament and the Library of the Helsinki School of Economics. Both libraries are open to all users. You speak of ”budgetary institutions” in general. That field is very large – it seems to me that this term includes all kinds of institutions, financed by various states and by various international organizations. However, if you really should write on such a general level, there is a useful looking report in the Internet, published by the World Band in 2007. Here is the address: http://siteresources.worldbank.org/PSGLP/Resources/BudgetingandBudgetar… If you…

What are the international reculations of using the acamidec resources of Finland while studying in EU/Overseas? What do you recommend for the library to visit… 1035 16.9.2010 I'm afraid I don't quite understand your question. What exactly do you mean by "academic resources" and "regulations"? If you mean the library collections of the Finnish university libraries and the right to use them, so basically they are open for everybody and it is also possible to request interlibrary loans from their collections, even to be sent abroad. If you are staying in Finland, there are many libraries worth visiting. Depending on your special interests, I would recommend e.g. the following: http://www.nationallibrary.fi/index.html http://www.aralis.fi/en/taik.html http://lib.tkk.fi/en/ http://helecon.lib.hse.fi/EN/ http://www.lib.hel.fi/en-GB/ You will find the contact information of all Finnish libraries at http://www.…

What is the best library in the Helsinki area to use if I want to sit down with my own laptop for a few hours and get some work done? I'll need internet access… 1355 14.7.2010 The wireless internet connection service named Stadinetti can be used in every city library in Helsinki. For using Stadinetti, you need a HelMet library card and PIN code. If you don’t have them, you can get them from your local library by showing your identification card (for example your passport or Finnish driving licence). It’s really hard to say which library would be the best one for you, but all the libraries have certainly space for you and your laptop and a power plug. The nearest one would be Kallio Library (http://www.lib.hel.fi/en-GB/kallio/), street address Viides linja 11 (see http://kartta.hel.fi/opas/indexen.html). Kallio Library is a big library, so there should be a lot of space. My favourite library is Pasila Library (…

I'm Brazil in Rio de Janeiro and I want to clarify a doubt. What are the most common questions that users of the internet do for you? Please I need help from… 894 5.7.2010 We have a couple of ways of analyzing our questions: we can look for words most used in questions sent to us, we can follow the most common searches, we can see the most read questions in the archive and follow questions that have been answered by the semantic librarian. In all these we can see that people ask us much about litterature, poetry and about authors. One of the most common questions considers names, people want to know the origin, etymology, of names, both christian names and family names. Also models for will and other dees are of great interest. Library services are also a common topic in our questions. There are a few studies about Ask a Librarian, but they are in Finnish.
