Useful information and interesting facts about Finnish libraries can now be found even easier than before, gathered under themes that are the building blocks of Finnish public libraries: functioning society, digitality and promotion of reading.
Libraries.fi is a professional library service and a web library that provides access to Finnish Library Net Services under one user interface. Libraries.fi is produced in cooperation by Finnish libraries. Content services, information delivery and technical development of electronic services designed for different target groups are at the core of our activities and the portal serves as a starting point especially for users seeking information about libraries, culture and information services. The unit is, together with the National Library of Finland, helping public libraries rationalize production of their web services. Our goal is to strengthen the competitive position of libraries on the web also through communications and marketing.
Libraries.fi is both a development unit and editorial staff for the trilingual website: the Finnish, Swedish and English language sites are portals with access to resources on literature, information retrieval, music and libraries. Libraries.fi is also a platform offering interactive web services, library television and radio as well as a news service for the use of library professionals. Library Channel (Kirjastokaista) is part of that entity.
