Volter Kilpi – A Book Chaos Clearing Visionary


Volter Kilpi (1874–1939) may be best known as a Finnish author, but he also had a long library career. Kilpi worked as the first head librarian of the Turku University Library from 1921 until his death. Kilpi’s legacy is clearly seen in the classification system, which is still in use in some of the library’s collections, and also in the Volter database named after him.
