International Seminar on Collection Mapping - Yliopistokirjastojen
kokoelmakartta: kansainvälinen seminaari - Helsinki, 28-29 November 2005
Aim and purpose
The Collection Map of Finnish University Libraries is a project launched
in 2003 by the Council for Finnish University Libraries, funded by the
Finnish Ministry of Education, to improve the availability and coverage
of research materials in university library collections. The idea is to
show the collection profiles of different university libraries as a
whole and to give an overall picture of the strenghts and weaknesses of
the libraries' research materials by subject. In fact, the project
reflects the collection co-operation of the Finnish university libraries
and the national resource library system going back to the1970s.
Collections of other research libraries may also be included in the
Collection Map in the future.
The seminar aims at giving a current picture of the Collection Map
Project, highlighting some of the collection services planned by the
project. It also aims at providing a forum for discussion by bringing
together librarians and information specialists involved in this
specific project, as well as those interested in collection and
information resources development issues in general by exploring some
related projects and services of other countries.
