Openness is the strategic goal of the National Library of Finland. The National Library of Finland especially promotes open access. We are an expert in open access issues, provide open publication archive platform services and promote open access, for example, by negotiating with publishers.
The cooperation aims at improving the preconditions of cultural and social research, bringing our materials widely accessible to scholars and developing services required by research in interaction with the scholarly community.
The statutory duty of the National Library of Finland is to preserve the priceless national, published cultural heritage materials permanently. We promote digitising and, through it, the visibility, equal availability and usability of our unique collections.
