Wireless networks

In the Library you can use the same wireless networks as on the other public premises of the University and TAMK. Primarily, use the protected Eduroam network so that you can access the Library's e-resources.

As a visitor you can connect to the campus specific guest networks. You can collect a temporary guest account from the IT Helpdesk on campuses; furthermore on Main Campus also from info desks in Main building and Pinni B building and on TAMK Main Campus from info desk and the Library. With a temporary guest account you cannot access the Library's e-resources but only by using those computers of the Library that are for visitor use.
