The National Library of Finland produces publications on its collections and exhibitions. Our operations are described in the Reports and Studies online publication series, reviews of the season’s highlights in the Kansalliskirjasto and Tietolinja magazines, as well as the annual English Bulletin issue.
Kansalliskirjaston historian laajin peruskorjaus toteutettiin vuosina 2013 - 2015. Korjaushanke koski pääosin C.L. Engelin suunnittelemaa kirjaston päärakennusta, myös Rotundassa tehtiin muutostöitä. Kirjaston päärakennus Unioninkadulla avattiin jälleen asiakkaille 1.3.2016.
Oheisessa kaksikielisessä (suomi ja englanti) esitteessä esitellään paitsi korjaushanketta, myös konservointityötä, talotekniikkaa sekä uusia ratkaisuja, joiden avulla parannettiin kirjaston toiminnallisuutta.
