Dear Sir or Madam,
I was wondering whether you could provide me with info regarding Helsinki City Libraries which have a choice of videos in English available for borrowing.
Please advise on the libraries which are situates in teh downtown area or close to it.
Thank you in advance!
All Helsinki City Libraries have a choice of videos in English available for borrowing. It is customary in Finland to provide foreign films with subtitles, not dub them, so the sound track (speech, that is) is original. Big downtown libraries are: Rikhardinkatu, Töölö, and Kallio. Where they are and how to get there: http://www.lib.hel.fi/english/library_info/list_of_libraries/index.html
You can search our database HelMet in http://www.helmet.fi/screens/opacmenu.html
Select KEYWORD. Type two asterisks (**) in the search field. Then select VIDEOCASSETTE or DVD under "All types of materials". Then select the language (English). You get the list of matches in chronological order, the newest first. You can limit the search by year, if you don't want to see all five thousands of English video cassettes, or 522 dvd's.
