The Aalto University Library is a scientific library open to the public, housing extensive and diverse electronic and print collections in all the disciplines taught at the university. The Aalto University Library comprises three campus libraries: Arabia (arts and design), Otaniemi (technology) and Töölö (economics).
Material can be borrowed from the library collections free of charge but a library card is required. Aalto University students can use their student card as a library card after it has been activated at the library customer service.
All the required course books and other study material can be found in the library either in electronic or print form. Students can also access the electronic material outside the university landline network using their Aalto account.
The library organises training for students in the use of the library and information retrieval skills at different stages of their studies. The library staff gives assistance in information retrieval for theses as well as in the use of the library information systems and materials.
The Aalto University Library has contacts with libraries and information source suppliers all over the world. Through the inter-library loan service, you can order material from libraries both abroad and in Finland not available in your own library.
The campus libraries have areas for reading and workstations available to students, with the Arabia and Töölö Campus Libraries also offering group work rooms for customers to reserve.
