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… 199 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…

: 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… 192 16.7.2018 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...

Haluaisin tietää, mitä strategisia kumppaneita yleisellä kirjastolla voi olla. 188 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…
