Research and study services

Collection presentations for students

The personnel of the library are happy to present the collections and research opportunities provided by them to student groups from higher education and other educational institutions.

The National Library of Finland offers excellent materials for thesis work. We also provide assistance in information retrieval and use of electronic materials.

The service is provided free of charge.

Data services

Data services serve a wide range of students, researchers, artists, and other data users, regardless of their discipline. Even those who are not researchers can take advantage of the data. Digitised materials also have a download tool that can be used to create a data set that is suitable for your purposes. You can access the data independently with the data catalogue and tools developed by the National Library. You can use the data with the support of the National Library of Finland’s expertise or in co-operation projects with the National Library.

Open Access Services

FinELib license agreements for scholarly journals include open access benefits. They enable the corresponding authors to publish their articles openly, either free of article processing charges or with a discounted price. FinELib-service pages offer information on using open access benefits.

Research cooperation

We participate in research projects that promote the availability and usability of our materials as well as improve the quality of our materials with, for example, new types of content data or by utilising applications based on artificial intelligence.
