What is the music therapy's effect on depression? 764 26.1.2009 We are not experts on psychology or any of its different disciplines, but hopefully the following websites will give some idea how music is used in helping people to overcome depression. However, in short it would seem that some of the psychologists and psychiatrists are of the opinion that music can relieve stress and that it can enable people to open up to their inner conflicts and thus provide ways to solve the actual reasons behind depression. http://www.cochrane.org/reviews/en/ab004517.html http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/26744/music_therapy_as_treatme… http://www.holisticonline.com/Remedies/Depression/dep_sound_therapy.htm http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/01/080122203158.htm http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/…

Terve, I am doing a survey of Savo Finnish books in Finnish libraries. For how long do you keep the loan records of your books? Kiitoksia paljon. 753 28.8.2008 Do you mean to inquire for how long do Finnish libraries have information on borrowers of a book after the book has been returned? In Helsinki region, we do not keep such loan records at all. Instead, the customer can him/herself see his/her own personal borrowing history in his own record in our database Helmet (http://www.helmet.fi/). For that you must have pin code on your HelMet card. If, instead, you mean lending statistics of a book: we keep count permanently and the cumulating loan issue number increases (hopefully) or at least stays (not so hopefully) up to the book is discarded. With “Savo Finnish books”, do you mean books written in Savo dialect? In that case you may be interested in the list of fiction books in Savo dialect in…

I'm an a American Student at the Kent State School of Library and Information Science in the United States. I'm interested in working in Finnish libraries. I… 752 17.12.2013 Your question is a bit difficult to answer since i do'nt know the american library work, but in general i guess that the differences are'nt very significant. We use decimal classification, but not the same in university libraries and public libraries. Both are developed similarly to Dewey decimal classification, so the classification system should'nt be a problem. University libraries, special libaries and public libraries use different kinds of systems in acquisition of materials, cataloguing, shelving, but nothing so radically different, that it would'nt be comprehensible to a librarian. The new trends in library work and material are much the same as in the United States. I would guess that the biggest challenge in working in a Finnish…

Do I need to have a social security number in order to register myself into a library in Finland or I only need to provide an address where I am living? 752 23.1.2012 The user regulations may vary from one library to another, but at least here in HelMet libraries (Helsinki Metropolitan Area Libraries) it is not necessary to have a Finnish social security number to get a library card. You only have to have an address in Finland and present a valid ID card or passport. If you do not have a Finnish social security number, your library card will only be valid for six months at a time. After that period, you have to visit the library to renew the validity of the library card. Check the user regulations at http://www.helmet.fi/search~S9/ -> Help -> User regulations.
