Why is there not a FREE telephone directory for Finland ? I can not pay the Fee for a search because it's impossible to do so from where I am. 27 29.11.2018 Providing a public list of telephone numbers (a telephone directory) is a commercial business. There has never been one free catalog for whole Finland, but the local telephone companies did make their own catalogs for a long time and these were given free to the people who owned a share of the company. The last printed catalog in Helsinki area was pubished 2017. Heikki Poroila

How can I reserve this book to Laajalahti library in Espoo? Flow : the psychology of optimal experience / Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi 41 25.10.2018 If you have the 4-digit PIN code plus your own library card, you can make a reservation directly via this link http://luettelo.helmet.fi/record=b2360187~S9*fin (there are already two reservations waiting for Munkkiniemi library to get their copy, so anyway you have to wait). If you do not yet have the PIN code, you have to visit some of the HelMet libraries and get one. You can make a reservation in library anytime. Heikki Poroila

Now the system generated a fine and I would like… 53 17.10.2018 You must first renew or return the loans. Only then will you be able to pay the accrued fines. You can also renew your loans by telephone. Instead of a card number, you can use your social security number. If the books are reserved, they can not be renewed.
Why do you have books that are fom uncompleted series? I mean you have Jane Casey's The reckoning The last gril The kill and After the fire, but not The… 85 06.09.2018 I cannot answer for Jane Casey case especially, but in general there are at least three reasons, why a library collection does not necessary have all the books from a series. 1. The series has been complete, but during the years copies have been lost or stolen and new copies have not been purchased. 2. If the missing ones are the newest in the series, they are probably not yet in the collection but will be there later. The customer may always ask for the situation. 3. In some cases the staff does not know, if a book is part of a series or some parts of the series are already out of print, when the library would like to buy them. The customers of HelMet libraries can always make an acquisition request. The library is just happy if the…
: My partner and I were wondering if our local libraries accept book donations in Finland. We have books in other languages (Spanish, Swedish, English) that we… 110 16.07.2018 Hi! Basically yes, but it depends so much on the exact titles you have to offer. If the library (system) already has enough of that title, the answer is always "thanks but no thank you!". Especially when we are dealing with books in other languages than Finnish most of the smaller libraries are probably not willing to be active at all. If possible, visit the main library in Pasila and ask for the staff of the Multilingual Library or send them e-mail at monikielinen.kirjasto@hel.fi or make a phone call (09) 3108 5402 And please remember that this is the moment of the year, when most professional librarians are on vacation! 1-2 months later everything is easier...

Here are a few links to make the subject narrower: Google has scholar search: https://scholar.google.fi/scholar?as_ylo=2018&q=festival+tourism+in+Europe&hl=fi&as_sdt=0,5&as_vis=1 https://scholar.google.fi/scholar?hl=fi&as_sdt=0,5&as_ylo=2018&as_vis=1&q=festivals+in+european+countries https://scholar.google.fi/scholar?hl=fi&as_sdt=0%2C5&as_ylo=2018&as_vis=1&q=geography+of+festival+tourism+in+Europe+&btnG= and some statistics: https://www.statista.com/statistics/306095/highest-grossing-festivals-worldwide/ http://uis.unesco.org/sites/default/files/documents/festival-statistics-key-concepts-and-current-practices-handbook-3-2015-en.pdf Worldcat is an…
I'm looking for Auni Nuolivaara's book "Paimen, piika ja emäntä". Which libraries of Finland can I read it? 133 02.04.2018 Several public libraries have this old book still in their collections. At least Helsinki, Joensuu, Oulu, Rovaniemi and Tampere city libraries have this item. If you come to Finland, it should not be difficult to borrow a copy of this one. But if you need an international interlibrary loan, you need to start asking for it in your local library, wherever it is. Heikki Poroila
I was trying to reserve a CD from a band named Unit 4 +2, and there didn't seem to be a way to do it. There doesn't appear to be a "Request It" button at this… 124 27.02.2018 Right now the only copy of the CD has been taken aside for some repair operation (I cannot see the reason). Unfortunately you just have to wait and hope that eveything goes well and the CD is soon again in circulation. If that happens, you see the possibility to reserve it as well. Heikki Poroila
What do you reckon the classification systems will be like in 100 years? 94 14.02.2018 Are you asking about the classification systems in the libraries? If not, your answer is not possible to answer in any way. Even if we talk just about library classification systems, 100 years ahead is too much to predict anything. But if there are still organized collections of documents in 2118, some kind of classification is most likely still needed. Even if the libraries and the data bases are not anymore conducted by humans but by machines, there must be ways to analyze the documents according to their contents. The complexity of the data in 2118 probably means, that today's classification systems are not enough, much broader and more complex systems will be needed. To take just one example, music, which is my area of expertise, one…
