Advances in Library and Information Science in Finland.
Finnish Government, Helsinki.
The research libraries in Finland are in the majority of case libraries of universities and other institutions for higher education. Libraries in research institutes and some other special libraries account for some 20-30% of the total operational capacity. It is hoped the necessity of efficient libraries as a support to teaching and research will be expressed in a concrete way in the revised legislation concerning the development of the university system. The development of public libraries from 1964 through 1972 is briefly traced and the development of scientific and technical information from 1964 through 1970 is recounted. (Author/NH)
