The National Library of Finland has digitised over ten million pages of newspapers, journals and ephemera in its DIGI service available at

Newspapers make up some four million pages and journals some six million. The service features the oldest Finnish newspapers dating all the way back to 1771. Because of copyright restrictions, newspapers only up to 1910 are freely accessible. Newspapers published after 1910 are available in the various Finnish legal deposit libraries.

Some of the ephemera digitised by the National Library are available on the DIGI service, and some on the Doria service.

The National Library’s Centre for Preservation and Digitisation in Mikkeli is currently digitising newspapers up to 1920 as well as journals up to 1944.
