In this paper, some results of the analysis of the empirical data concerning the development and use of the handbook are highlighted. The data includes three surveys (2010, 2013 and 2016) of user experiences as well as documents and expert interviews related to the creation of the handbook and its further developments. The data covers the period from launching the handbook in 2007, to the ways it is utilized in 2017. The emphasis in this paper is to examine the ways this handbook, as a social and technological innovation, has been and is participating in the systems of the Finnish welfare state.
