Haluaisin tietää, mitä strategisia kumppaneita yleisellä kirjastolla voi olla. 201 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…

I want to know the meaning and history of the Croatian girl name Vjosa 198 26.5.2004 I was consulting a native speaker and a person who is writing a dissertation on Christian names in Croatia and Bulgaria. They both said they never heard the name Vjosa and that it is not a traditional Slavic name. The one who is writing her dissertation was checking in her Christian name books (in Croatian, Slovenian, Bulgarian, Swedish, German and Finnish) and she didn´t find that name in any of those books. In southern Albania there is a river by the name Vjosa. Names of places/rivers have been quite often used as female (usually) Christian names as well. Vjosa is probably used as female name among native Albanians. It is of course possible (if not very common) that an Albanian name has been given to a Croatian girl.

How do you say in Finnish: "Set and maintain boundaries"? 198 24.3.2022 Translation isn't easy. In most cases, you need to know more how and where the sentence is used. Like in this case: what kind of boundary is being set and maintained? A literal boundary line between neighbours or countries? More abstract concept, like personal boundaries in a certain situation? Perhaps "Asettaa ja ylläpitää rajoja" would work in both cases? If this is about personal boundaries, I might add a possessive affix.
