The National Library of Finland’s new strategy for 2021-2030 sets equality, responsibility, and strengthening society’s knowledge base as central goals for the coming years. The strategy has a strong emphasis on openness, whether it is promoting open science or the openness of resources and services, as it is seen as a key in reducing inequality in society. Also sustainable development and life-long learning feature strongly in the strategic plan.
The four strategic choices and development areas outlined in the strategic plan are: I. Cultural heritage for the common good, II. National Library at the heart of the academic community, III. National Library as a resource of Bildung and learning, and IV. Creating a powerful hub of expertise through network cooperation.
