Thus, Hell Bank Notes are simply Afterlife Monetary Offerings or Spirit Money. …when people die, their spirits or ghosts go to an afterlife where they continue to live on, doing the same sort of things why did while alive, eating, drinking, wearing clothes, playing with their children, and so forth. In order to ensure that they have lots of good things in the afterlife, their…

Does it cost to print in the library? If I need to print many pages should i bring my own printing paper? 148 20.4.2018 If you're visiting Turku city libraries on normal opening hours then you don't need to bring any printing paper with you. It then costs 20 cents per page to print (i.e. 40 cents per double-sided printing). The price is the same whether you print in color or in black and white. If, on the other hand, you are visiting one of the branch libraries during its open hours when there's no staff present, then you actually do need to bring your paper with you. At this situation there's no additional fee for printing of course.

Haluaisin tietää, mitä strategisia kumppaneita yleisellä kirjastolla voi olla. 146 9.3.2005 Kumppanuus tarkoittaa Ståhlen ja Laennon (2000) mukaan sekä yrityksen ulkoisia yhteistyösuhteita että sen sisäistä toimintakulttuuria, joissa toimijoina ovat ihmiset, ja joiden varaan myös kumppanuus rakentuu. Kumppanuus ei ole myötäsyntyistä, ja siksi sitä pitää rakentaa kuten johtajuuttakin, johon kumppanuuden taito sisältyy. Strategia –sana itsessään viittaa sodankäyntiin, josta se on lainattu liikemaailmaan ja sitä kautta se on rantautunut myös kirjastomaailmaan. Käsitteenä strategia voidaan ymmärtää läheisenä toimintatapana Strateginen kumppanuus yhdistää tietoresursseja siten, että kumppanit saavuttavat merkittävää strategista etua itselleen. Strategisessa kumppanuudessa molemmilla osapuolilla onkin tasavertaiset roolit, jotka…

Do libraries in Finland have an obituary index that I might request an obituary from the late 1800's to middle 1900's? I do not have a death date, just a name… 142 16.11.2001 To my knowledge the libraries in Finland do not have obituary indexes. You may be able to get a photocopy of a obituary if it has been printed in a newspaper. Most libraries have their local newspapers on microfilm. I suggest you contact your library and ask them to help you through the interlibrary lending system. At first you really should try to find out the death date. It is essential if you want to find the obituary. Most libraries have access to parish records on microfilm. On the net you can find and search information about Finnish parishes: http://www.genealogia.fi/indexe.htm .

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… 137 6.9.2018 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…
