This collection was started in a collaboration project between the Terminology Forum, compiled by the University of Vaasa, and the Language Bank of Finland. In the project, the original collection of 553 glossaries and other terminological information resources was reviewed, and approximately twenty glossaries were selected for a pilot project. The authors and compilers of the glossaries were contacted in order to ask for their permission to publish their work. Ten glossaries were included in the first publication batch where the process was tested. When possible, the collection is to be expanded with new glossaries after their licenses are cleared.

The first release (5.10.2021) contains the following glossaries:

Ensimmäinen ATK-sanastoPolkupyöräwikin sanasto
Karavaanarin sanastoRahoitusalan sanasto
Kokous- ja konferenssisanastoTietotekniikkasanasto
