I would like to know about the origin of the English language. 776 22.1.2009 You will find lots of good web pages about the origin of the English language simply by using the search terms "english language history" in any internet search engine. E.g. here is one thorough article on the subject: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_English_language If you would like to get more personalized answers to your question, I would suggest for you to turn to some "Ask a librarian" service in any English-speaking country. We Finns might not be the best possible specialists of the English language.

I was just wondering if it would be possible to volunteer at a library? If so, what sort of duties would I be doing? 775 11.2.2014 First of all: if one cannot speak Finnish moderately well, there are quite few jobs at the library available. The customers have the right to get service on their own language. There are some duties, where the fluent Finnish is not so necessary - like putting the returned books back to shelves and other technical jobs -, but the main question is, if the library really needs that kind of help. I would say, that many public libraries do not necessarily want volunteered people, unless they have some kind of experience with the library material or with customer services. But in the end everything depends on the local circumstances and the thoughts of the chief librarian. You just got to visit one of them to know, if working in the library…
What is the semantic web ? 775 6.5.2010 The Semantic Web vision was conceived by Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web. He calls it the next step in Web evolution. Berners-Lee defines the Semantic Web as “a web of data that can be processed directly and indirectly by machines.” The Semantic Web brings to the Web the idea of having data defined and linked in a way that it can be used for more effectively.

I'm doing research and want to know the meaning of the word: erikoiskirjastonhoitaja. And what makes this profession? 773 30.6.2015 Basically each library can decide which titles are used for the members of its staff. The title 'erikoiskirjastonhoitaja' is used mostly in public libraries. As far as I know, in Helsinki City Library the title is usually translated into English as 'specialized librarian'. Just like librarians ('kirjastonhoitaja') and information specialists ('informaatikko'), specialized librarians are required to have a university degree in librarianship. The salary of a specialized librarian is a little higher than that of a librarian and a little lower than that of an information specialist. The middle salary of specialized librarians in Finnish public libraries in October 2013 was 2478 € per month ( http://www.kuntatyonantajat.fi/fi/kunta-tyonantajana…
