The Librarians’ Foundation

Here is something in English for You:

Librarians Foundation was established in 1996, when Librarians Trade Union became a member in a bigger trade union for Special Municipality Academic workers. Our Foundations’ aim is to foster and support the work of librarians in Municipal libraries and the basic training in the field, as well as research. Over the past 20 years, the Foundation has supported the publication of books, and numerous dissertations in the field. In recent years, the focus of the Foundation has been shifted to various projects with Kumula. Annually we give diplomas to the Best Graduation thesis in our field. We are starting in 2024 sharing support for Educational trips abroad for Finnish Librarians.

In January 2017 we were proud to be sponsoring the Bobcatsss 2017 conference in Tampere.

In September 2018 we were sponsoring the ECIL 2018 -conference in Oulu. [1]
