This requires strong utilisation of information and communication technology and an aptitude for network- oriented studying.

14 © Markku Markkula Libraries Play a Key Role Lifelong Learning Passion to Learn Libraries are essential for knowledge management According to the new Library Act of Finland, "the objective of library services is also to promote the development of virtual and interactive network services and their educational contents". All citizens will have access to the public libraries and their material regardless of its publication format, plus the opportunity to use information networks and obtain help in finding information and using information networks and services.
