The National Library of Finland is in charge of recording and maintaining the national publishing heritage and ensuring its accessibility. Their duties are to develop and offer national services for libraries as well as to promote the national and international cooperation in the library field. The National Library operates as an independent institution that is a part of the University of Helsinki. In order to maintain and develop The National Library’s systems, the library chose to work with Integrify.

The National Library of Finland chose to hire two Integrify developers through Integrify's staffing services.

Why did the National Library partner with Integrify?

“We’ve seen that from time to time it’s challenging to find and recruit experienced developers to our tech team. We were pleased to see that Integrify could offer us developers who were already specialized in programming languages we use in our projects.” Lassi Lager, Information Systems Manager at The National Library of Finland

"We’re happy to see that the two developers we hired from Integrify have been skillful and very motivated colleagues. It's been nice and easy to work with them."

What kind of projects have the developers from Integrify been working on?

The Integrify developers have been working with the following tasks:

System Development Project:

"The Integrify developers have been helping us to develop a new technical implementation of Identifier Services. The Identifier Services is a public registry of Finnish publishers. The National Library provides publishers with ISBN-, ISSN- and ISMN-identifiers. The purpose of the project is to reimplement the current user interface and expand it with publisher interface as well as enhance the current administration interface."

Technical implementation:

The new service will be integrated to a wider architecture with same technologies and programming languages, mostly Node.js are used.
