Library of Congress Publishes Bibliography on Finland and the Finns
The Library of Congress has just published Finland and the Finns: A Selective Bibliography to provide researchers and students with a guide to current sources. It was compiled by Dr. Elemer Bako, a retired Finno-Ugrian Area Specialist of the Library's European Division.
This 276-page illustrated bibliography is the result of many years of research covering all aspects of life in Finland. It reflects the success of the longstanding international acquisitions programs at the Library.
The publications listed in this work are not limited to those issued by Finns or in Finland; it contains many publications by American, Scandinavian, and other non-Finnish students of Nordic history, culture, and politics.
The bibliography lists a total of 2,108 publications. Included is a selective listing of Library of Congress holdings of maps and atlases of Finland. All items cited in the bibliography are available in the collections of the Library of Congress, which currently contain some 100,000 Finnish-language items.
Finland and the Finns: A Selective Bibliography (Washington: Library of Congress, 1993) is available for $24 from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402-9328 (cite stock number 030-000-00249-1 when ordering). Telephone orders may be placed by calling (202) 783- 3238 to charge copies to VISA or MasterCard.
