The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of library associations in Finland, which is unique in that there are four library associations within a common infrastructure established by the National Library.
The paper looks at all four library associations in Finland.
The paper finds that the associations have become part of a nationally connected series of projects and are working to create more commitment from the professionals who either make or break the associations.
As a model Finland's library associations have many lessons to offer into the future.
