You are here


In addition to the library’s own Anders Web Library and printed collections, the library has a number of on-line databases. Databases are available for customers in the libraries’ workstations.

Most of the databases are so-called reference databases, i.e. they contain information on catalogue details, availability, and, sometimes, short resumes of books, articles and other materials, but not the actual contents, such as full texts of the articles.

Books and other materials from all the Finnish libraries

With Frank Metasearch you can find library books and other materials from almost all the Finnish libraries that are open and also from several different databases simultaneously.

Frank Metasearch is first of all intended for localizing materials, in other words you can find out at which libraries the material you are looking for is available or may be requested.


Fennica is the Finnish National Bibliography.

It contains information on Finnish publications, in Finnish, written by Finnish authors, and materials about Finland. The database covers information from 1910 (at the end of 1997 from 1828), and magazines from 1782. The database also contains 530 000 titles (January 1997), and its annual accumulation is c. 55 000 titles. It also contains advance information on forthcoming domestic publications.
