|Is there a CD recording of a Finish military or military-type brass band playing FINlANDIA?
||You probably mean Finlandia, op. 26 by Jean Sibelius. There are some CD recordings of the complete Finlandia played by a Finnish military(-type) brass band. I found these four:
1. 90 vuotta suomalaista sotilasmusiikkia : Puolustusvoimien juhlalevy (2 CDs and 1 DVD, Puolustusvoimat SAMCD 90, 2008) (Finlandia played by Sotilasmusiikkikoulu)

|I am writing an academic article about public libraries and I need to send out my online questionnaires to Finnish public librarians. Who should I contact or…
||There are several possibilities where to send your online questionnaires, depending on the nature of your survey. You have to decide to whom you want to send your questionnaires. You could think about whether you would like to send the questionnaires for the library administration (library directors etc.) or individual librarians. It could also be useful to think which libraries you want to include. The provincial libraries are the libraries that are in charge of the public library service in their regions. In addition to them, there are several smaller libraries and branch libraries.
Frank Metasearch -site includes a list of all Finnish public libraries and provincial libraries: http://monihaku.kirjastot.fi/en/. After deciding which…

||First, we have to tell you that we are not copyright specialists, so this answer has been given by amateurs.
According the Finnish Copyright Law (“Tekijänoikeuslaki”, http://www.finlex.fi/fi/laki/ajantasa/1961/19610404), translations and adaptations are protected by the law, so you need a permission from the author when making adaptations. If it’s the same text in other words, I think it will be considered an adaptation. In the Finnish Copyright Law, there is no fair use as in USA.

||You can bring the DVD to the library, if they have a place for donations and voluntary recycling of materials (many libraries in Helsinki do have). Unfortunately the library itself is not allowed to receive movies as donations, since we have to get a license and pay for it for copyright reasons.

The most part of the answers are available, only those containing personal information that can't be published is hidden. Our RSS-feeds are at present only in Finnish, but we should of course include all languages (Finnish, Swedish and English) in the feed. This is the addres to our RSS-feed, http://www2.kirjastot.fi/_channels/?ChannelId=7146af19-b294-449a-9ecc-6… . I'll enquire about the change, it might not be to difficult to change it in near future.

|Looking at maps of Päijänne Tavastia I noticed, near Enonvesi lake in Heinola, that there's a small enclave of Päijänne Tavastia inside Southern Savonia. The…
||I found an Internet site, that contains some knowledge about the history of the Enonvesi-region and it's villages, http://www.enonkylat.fi/historiikki/. As far as I understand, part of the area has belonged to the cultural region of Häme from early on, the fiscal authorities and the nearest church have been in Häme. That could probably be the explanation to the fact that thist part, called Paadenmaa, still belongs to Päijät-Häme and not to South-Savonia.
There is a contactform on the pages of Enonkylät ry, they could possibly give you more accurate information, http://www.enonkylat.fi/?f=1.
|Why the Kirjasto 10 called 10?
||Library 10 is located at Postitalo, which used to be the main post office of Helsinki. The building is not anymore owned by Posti but it still contains a post office on its ground floor. The post office has been commonly known as "Helsinki 10" because the postal code for city center of Helsinki is 00100. Library 10 is located on upper floor of "Helsinki 10". That’s why the name "Library 10" was chosen.
