Library Collections and Materials

The SKS Library houses collections in the fields of cultural research and Finnish literature.

The library’s collections contain:

  • Finnish and foreign literature in the field of cultural research
  • Finnish literature and literary research
  • research literature from other humanities and social science fields.

The publications of the Finnish Literature Society are part of our collections, irrespective of the subject.

In addition to printed materials, we offer open access e-books and e-journals as well as licensed electronic materials in our core fields. Licensed materials are available on site in the SKS Library.

SKS Finna is the library’s own search service. You can search for our printed and e-materials. The search targets our collection catalogue in the Helka database. You can also search international e-materials: EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) covers several international databases.
