I wonder if you could tell me what the salary of a finnish librarian is? And how are the credits of them? How is the education of becoming librarian handled? 121 24.11.2006 The average salary for a librarian in Finland is 2 046 euros/month. http://www.kuntatyonantajat.fi/index~id~3C33AE32DC744D87AB4ABC847A5C107… (Commission for Local Authority Employers) The salaries in the municipal libraries are smaller than in the scientific/research libraries.

What do you reckon the classification systems will be like in 100 years? 120 14.2.2018 Are you asking about the classification systems in the libraries? If not, your answer is not possible to answer in any way. Even if we talk just about library classification systems, 100 years ahead is too much to predict anything. But if there are still organized collections of documents in 2118, some kind of classification is most likely still needed. Even if the libraries and the data bases are not anymore conducted by humans but by machines, there must be ways to analyze the documents according to their contents. The complexity of the data in 2118 probably means, that today's classification systems are not enough, much broader and more complex systems will be needed. To take just one example, music, which is my area of expertise, one…
What kind of reference source should I consult in order to find out whether there is a librarian character in a writer's novel, say Barbara Pym or someone else… 119 13.7.2004 In order to find fiction about a given theme, consult any library catalogue you wish. In most library catalogues nowadays, the titles have been provided with ample description about the contents of the work in question. This means that you can choose your keywords fairly freely. Only bear in mind that such searches can never give a 100% result, due to the fact that it is impossible to catalogue every single aspect of e.g. a novel. So, choose any library catalogue. You do not tell why you are sending your question to the Finnish "Ask a librarian" service, but assuming that you are especially interested in Finnish sources, you have to use keywords in Finnish in your searches. Choose. e.g. the HelMet catalogue ( http://www.helmet.fi/screens/…

I am looking for information about a language called "skolta", which is spoken in the north of Finland 118 15.3.2001 Skolt is a very small language spoken by the Skolts, a group of Lappish people, living in the most north-northeastern part of Finnish Lapland and in the north-western part of Russia. There are only about one thousand Skolt-speakers left, half of them in Finland. Even these very few people speak various dialects, which can differ drastically even from village to village. So if your main wish is to be able to comumunicate with the parents of a friend I recommend sticking to English, and asking your friend to teach you a couple of phrases. But if you are interested in the language beside that, you could start with reading an article "Saamic" (pp.43-95) in "The Uralic Languages" / ed.by Daniel Abondolo. Routledge, London and New York, 1998…
