What do you reckon the classification systems will be like in 100 years? 129 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…

Where and how I could find a ref book of deceased people,to find the date of my father departed THANKS 124 31.3.2001 Unfortunately there is neither a referencebook nor a database available, which would contain information on the deceased all over the country. What I recommend you to do is to find out the city or county where your father lived and contact the parish register office. However, if he was killed in the Second Worldwar (1939-1945) you most propably will find this information in the address http://tietokannat.mil.fi which contains the file of fallen soldiers in the war 1939-45. This database is available also in English. If you are interested in genealogic research I recommend you to check http://www.genealogia.fi , which has excellent links, too.

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… 124 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/…
