The National Library of Finland and Kopiosto have agreed on the right to provide the digital newspapers and magazines included in the former’s collections for research use through the digi.kansalliskirjasto.fi service as part of the Tutkain project in 2020–2022.

Thanks to the Tutkain project, researchers will be able to use Finnish newspapers and magazines from 1930–2018 digitized by the National Library. Also the time period from years 1918–1929 is included here. Research use here refers to non-commercial scientific or artistic research, reports, theses or final projects completed by students, researchers and other members of teaching and research staff at Finnish higher education institutions participating in Tutkain.

The material included in the Tutkain project has been licensed for 15 Finnish higher education institutions, including University of the Arts Helsinki, which can give users access through the HAKA authentication system to the National Library’s digital newspaper and magazine material for research use in the digi.kansalliskirjasto.fi service. The agreement also allows users to carry out machine-based analyses of the material and create datasets of the material for the verification of research and for later research.

The user entitled to Tutkain can use the materials via HAKA identification, i.e. Uniarts login, (login in right upper corner in digi.kansalliskirjasto.fi). One must fill in a license form when using the service for the first time.

Please contact the Uniarts Library for more details or with possible problems: lib@uniarts.fi.
