|Good evening, I would like to ask a question about cataloguing policy in Finnish public libraries. Is there any central cataloguing department that provides…
||All Finnish public libraries are responsible for their own cataloguing. There is an enterprise, BTJ, http://www.btj.fi/ , who sells materials for public libraries, also cataloguing records. Thus the main part of Finnish public libraries buy cataloguing records from BTJ and fill in information in these records at their own cataloguing departements. Centralized cataloguing for public libraries does'nt exist in Finland.
Finnish libraries use Finnish cataloguing rules, http://www.kansalliskirjasto.fi/kirjastoala/luettelointisaannot.html , which are based on the international cataloguing rules by IFLA http://www.ifla.org/en/cataloguing .

||The only thing we were able to find out about the bookstore of Anni Liljefors was the name and the phone number of the bookstore in the telephone directory of the year 1905.

|I would like to have all the information about artist Teemu Mäki´s video art, about killing a cat and the controversy between him and a writer.
I’m sorry that we kept you waiting.
It’s impossible to give a very detailed description of the controversy, which is still widening. The dispute has got plenty of publicity in the media since the end of April.
The newspapers are available in the libraries, but to read them you have to know Finnish or have a translator. So I try to summarize a little bit.
“Sex and death : different forms of violence” by Teemu Mäki is a videofilm from 1988. It includes a section, where the artist kills a stray cat with several blows of an axe. Afterwards he masturbates on the dead body.
In an interview in Hufvudstadsbladet (2004, May, 17) Teemu Mäki says that “the video was a documentary on mindless, inexicable violence, ecological destruction and…

|Can I have a list music CDs in Helsinki main (or other in other libraries as well) which are related with Cuban (Cuba) music? In which library and where in…
||You will find our bibliographic database at http://www.libplussa.fi/#en .
Go to the "Basic search" . Choose "Subject heading or class" and type "Kuuba" as search word. In the menu "Display All kinds of items" choose "Only CDs". Search.
(Unfortunately you have to use subject headings in Finnish, because our bibliographic records are in Finnish. If you choose title search you can also type Cuba# in English - note the truncation mark - but in that case you will get less references and not all of them are necessarily relevant.)
In the database you will also see the availability of the CDs in different libraries. The largest music collections in general are at Pasila Music Station, Töölö, Itäkeskus and Kallio libraries.
