For customers working on their thesis, we offer topical research subjects, specialist support, research materials and, if necessary, working premises at the National Library of Finland.

Our research subjects are mostly related to the development of centralised services offered to libraries, i.e. the national library network services.

  • In addition to the library and information field, we also offer research topics suitable for students of data processing and financial management.
  • It is possible to write the thesis as a commissioned work, either with a scholarship or as an employee
  • The commissioning of theses are always agreed upon case by case and funding depends on the necessity and situation of the division or project
  • In addition to the topics, the National Library of Finland provides statistical data suitable for the thesis. An access to the materials of libraries' national user surveys can be granted upon request. The data of the Finnish National Electronic Library FinELib's research survey can be searched from the Finnish Social Science Data Archive ». Additionally, the data recorded in the Finnish Research Library Statistics Database (KITT) can be utilised for research work.
  • If possible, expert help for planning the topic may also be offered
