The FinELib consortium centrally acquires electronic materials for its member organisations. The consortium members are Finnish universities, universities of applied sciences, research institutes and public libraries. The consortium’s service unit, the FinELib office, is located at the National Library. The FinELib office negotiates the licensing of e-materials on behalf of the consortium members.
The FinELib office also provides consortium members with support for acquiring materials outside the consortium. The consortium also promotes the use and availability of e-materials through various development projects.
The consortium service unit operates at the National Library of Finland.
