I am to start my masters in health care and quality management at the university of helsinki in january 2003 and was wondering if you can help me with part… 126 21.11.2002 I recommend you go to the webpages of the Ministry of Labour, Finland, http://www.mol.fi/english/index.html . On the frontpage you'll find a link to "Employment service". This is a good way to start. When you already are in Finland, you can also browse newspapers and read the college bulletinboard. Another useful address is, http://www.suomi.fi/english/immigrants_and_emigrants/ a portal of public services, maintained by Finnish government offices. This is not necessarily for job seeking, but contains other useful information on Finnish society.

Can we request that printed books be made available in eBook form? If so, how? 126 9.4.2019 In an ideal world this would be a fine possibility, but in the real world it is just the publisher, who can decide to offer an e-book version to the general market or just the libraries. The copyright legislation does not allow the libraries to purchase rights to e-books as it allows buying and lending out the printed material. In Finland the publishers do not necessarily want the lbrary system to provide free access to e-books, which can be sold directly to consumers. That is why the selection to libraries is not the same as to individual consumers. In the end it is the question of money. The publishers sell e-book rights to libraries, if they are willing and able to pay high enough prices. The market of e-books in Finland has not grown…

Short history of supercomputers in general is on page http://www.aspsys.com/clusters/beowulf/history/ http://www.linuxgazette.com/node/9721 tells us more about the history of supercomputers and linux, for example: "Clustering technology enabled large number of Linux machines to be combined into a single computing entity, a parallel computer.

First of all, my apologies if this isn't the right forum to pose this question. Sometime ago I bought all the DVDs for a TV show called Twin Peaks. It's in… 123 27.6.2019 Don't worry, this is just the right place to ask questions! The copyrigt legislation in Finland requires the library to pay for the possibility to lend out movies. This is why the Finnish libraries are not allowed to lend out donated movies. Many libraries have a place for recycling books, records and movies. You can leave your Twin Peaks DVD's to your closest library, if they have this service available. If not, you can ask the nearest one. Heikki Poroila

What is the basis of a bibliometric study and how can this kind of study be applied to the analysis of a scholarly journal. 118 16.3.2006 in a few words: Bibliometrics is a research method used in library and information science. It utilizes quantitative analysis and statistics to describe patterns of publication within a given field or body of literature. Researchers may use bibliometric methods of evaluation to determine the influence of a single writer, for example, or to describe the relationship between two or more writers or works. One common way of conducting bibliometric research is to use the Social Science Citation Index, the Science Citation Index or the Arts and Humanities Citation Index to trace citations. Useful links and hints can be found at: http://www.gslis.utexas.edu/~palmquis/courses/biblio.html
