Order items from other libraries
Interlibrary service covers all kinds of print materials, usually book loans or journal article copies.
We charge according to our pricelist.
Please note! Due to copyright law, starting 1.9.21 the Repository Library will no longer send electronic copies of articles to users; all copies are sent in print form by the library services.
In urgent cases
It’s often worth checking the availability of items from nearby libraries. If you find what you need from other library collections, often the quickest and the cheapest way is to visit and borrow items from there personally. Almost all libraries in Finland are open to everyone.
