Jyväskylä University Library - at the Heart of Campus

Finnish Web Archive

From the year 2006 onwards the National Library of Finland has been collecting web pages and other Internet-based material meant for the Finnish population or located physically in Finland. The Web Archive is available for researchers and other interested persons at the Copywright Collection Libraries. At the Jyväskylä University Main Library there is one workstation B228.

Booking for the workstation: tel. +358 14 260 3432 during the library service hours .

What can one do at the workstation?

It is possible to browse, view and listen to all the content in the archive. Digital copies can not be taken of the data, but it is possible, with personal devices, to photograph the computer screen and have paper copies of the material. There are headphones at the workstation.

At the workstation you can also read digitized Finnish newspapers and magazines from the 19th and 20th century as well as watch and listen to the Finnish Radio and Television Archive.

The workstation is not connected to the Internet. Files can not be saved to any personal memory devices nor be e-mailed.

We suggest that you take your laptop to facilitate research.

Index for The Finnish Web Archive

With the Index Search service you can search using the www-address if a certain web page has been stored in the Web Archive. By virtue of the Copyright Act, the full contents of the archive are accessible only at the Deposit Libraries using dedicated workstations. 

The Index is available at http://verkkoarkisto.kansalliskirjasto.fi/

The Internet Archive

The Internet Archive has been collecting digital material since 1996. If you cannot find what you are looking for in the Finnish Web Archive, try the Internet Archive collections, where the actual content is accessible on the Internet.
