Elka in Brief

The aim of Elka’s operations is to secure the preservation of historical information and traditions related to Finnish business life. The material stored in Elka is intended to be utilised by researches in current and future academic disciplines as well as by anyone else who requires the information. For this purpose, Elka collects, processes and makes available documents generated by the activities of companies, private persons, associations and organisations. The concept of “document” also covers drawings, maps, photographs and various audio and video recordings.
