How many books are published in Finland each year? What are the most common genres of music? Are books longer or shorter today than they were a century ago?
The National Library of Finland collects and preserves Finnish publications for future generations. In addition to archiving the publications themselves, we also store their metadata to ensure the content of the ever-growing collections can be searched and used. These data can be found in the Finnish National Bibliography.
A new publication presenting Finnish publication topics and changes in publication numbers over the years will be available in English in early 2023. The original Finnish publication, along with more information, can be found on the National Library of Finland’s website.
