Only the publications with ISSN is included in the pilot project. The duration of the project is the years 2023-2024. Article copies from other libraries 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.
