When is this book going to be available? Kata 148 27.2.2019 If you look at the information under COPIES ON ORDER, there is the line " 1 copy ordered for Myyrmäki aik on 01-10-2018." The book has been ordered already in October 2018, but for some reason - usually unknown to the library - the seller has not been able to provide us with a copy.

Working in Finnish Libraries 141 24.7.2021 Thank you for message.
