The changes in music distribution over the past decades have imposed new challenges on music libraries. What is the role of music libraries within the library sector. Are physical recordings needed anymore? 

Participants in the panel discussion on the topic: Vesa Siren (Helsingin Sanomat), Tuomas Pelttari (Turku City Library, The Finnish Music Library Association), Jukka Halttunen (Helsinki City Library), Ilona Heinonen (Tampere City Library), Ari Pyykkö (Turku), Ville Vaarne (The Finnish Library Association, editor in chief of the Kirjastolehti newsletter) and Ami Vuorinen (We Jazz Records). 

The live music for the evening will be provided by Raoul Björkenheim Trio, Raoul Björkenheim (guitar), Reiska Laine (drums) and Antti Lötjönen (bass), and the Rattlesnake Shakers, Samuel Leminen (vocals, guitar), Timo Ylönen (bass) and Mikko Savolainen (drums).
