Finnish Public Library Project Register

The Finnish public library project register is an online service for presenting public library development projects and good practices. It is funded by the Ministry for Education and Culture, and designed by the Council for Public Libraries. 

The project register collects all funding applications for public library development projects, as well as the corresponding funding decisions made by the Regional State Administrative Agencies (AVIs), starting from 2012. The register also includes projects funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, and the project ideas that did not receive funding. In addition to this, libraries can use the register to keep record of good practices. 

The project register visualisation makes it easy to browse the projects by themes, municipalities or years. The visualisation is available also in Finnish and Swedish.
