Can you tell me what kind of books that story about virtual librarian? 535 25.7.2002 I didn't quite understand the question but if you are interested in books that tell about virtual libraries and their development in general you might want to check books conserning library science (called "kirjastotiede" in finnish).

Saunders (ed.): The Evolving Virtual Library. 1999. - William Y. Arms: Digital Libraries. 2000.

There is also some general information about virtual libraries (see "Help" and "General instructions"). Other virtual libraries can be…

Can u give the information about the "researchers dig into hell" which they heard a sound from hell. can you give me the information. Thank you. There's an… 687 19.6.2002 Hello there! Because you know so exactly the name of the article you can give us little bit more information where you have heard about it. I searched with Internet search services and some other sources - no result. If I may say my opinion this "article" is more like a short story or novel than research or fact. Kind of a horror story If I may guess. So we here in the library try to search it from fiction shelves. Little bit extra information from your side couldn't do any harm. With regards Librarian
I am looking for the journal "Anarkhiia" (a.k.a. "Anarhia," "Anarchia" or "Anarkhia") publsihed in Moscow/Petrograd after the Russian revolution. Could you… 882 18.6.2002 Search on the union database of the academic libraries of Finland gives several matches with the search word ”anarhia” (transliterated according to ISO 9), but none of them would seem to be the journal you are looking for. For more information, please contact the department of Russian and Slavic materials of Helsinki University, called Slavonic Library (e-mail hyk-slav@helsinki.fi , www-address http://www.lib.helsinki.fi/english/services/collections/slavonic.htm ). On the telephone they told that they don’t have any old journal called Anarhia that would date from the period of the Russian Revolution of 1917. They do have two issues of Anarhia published in 1990-91 by anarcho-syndicalists in Petrograd.

Do you have some kind of Inter Library Loan (ILL) system similar to the one in universities in Finland? For e.g. http://www.utu.fi/kirjasto/lomakkeet/illform… 653 20.5.2002 Yes, we do have an inter library loan system - but, unfortunately, the inter library loan request form to be found in the web has not yet been translated into English: it is only available in Finnish and Swedish. If you understand Finnish, you can find a suitable form at http://www.lib.hel.fi/ under the headings Kaukopalvelu - Kaukopalvelu henkilöasiakkaille. There you can also check the charges. Just to summarize the principles: - an inter library loan costs 0,80 e - if you live in Helsinki, there are no other charges if the loan is sent from Finland or other Nordic countries - if you are not an inhabitant of Helsinki, the charges depend on the sending library (from Nordic countries 8,50 e) - an inter library loan from outside Nordic…

There you find f.ex. books written about B.R.

I'm searching for reference material on Sewage, concerning treatment methods, environmental implication and monitoring methods 582 18.4.2002 There's a link from the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission's webbsite to the OceanPortal. The address is http://ioc.unesco.org/oceanportal/ When you search the sites using the word sewage as searchword, you will find several interesting articles on your subject.

I would like to find information on the Royal Family of Finland, like the members of the Family. 1052 11.4.2002 Finland is a republic and therefore does not have a monarch but a president.
