The finnish memory organisations have lately decided to centralize the digitisation of national cultural heritage. The new consortium is called Digitalia. National Library´s digitisation centre, which is located in Mikkeli, will form the foundation of Digitalia. National Library`s digitisation centre will start a mass digitisation of the National Library's sound recordings in 2007.
