The premises and customer services of all five units of the Library will be opened to the members of the University community with access rights with limited service hours on Monday, 10th of August 2020. According to the general guidelines of the University community, the facilities are available in accordance with the access rights on weekdays from 8.00 to 16.00.

The services provided by the library will be expanded on Monday, August 10, 2020. In accordance with the guidelines of the University community, we will open the Library's premises for customer use to persons holding a University access card / key card on weekdays from 8.00 to 16.00. Customer service on the library's premises is generally available on weekdays between 10.00 and 14.00.

To minimize the risk of infection and to identify potential chains of infection, staff and students will have access to campus and library facilities with their key card.

Please note that according to the THL guidelines issued under the Communicable Diseases Act, a public space with other persons present at the same time must not be entered if there are any symptoms suggestive of any disease.  The necessary safety precautions must be observed in all the premises (safe distance of 2 metres, restrictions on gatherings, proper hygiene practices). We ask our customers to follow the safety instructions on the library premises. 

Library units open at Linna, Hervanta, TAMK Main campus, and Arvo 10.8.2020 onwards  - with key card:

TAMK Mediapolis unit is open according to TAMK's opening hours and the customer service is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10.00 to 14.00. 

The exemption arrangements are currently in force for the 1st period, ie until 18.102020. The arrangements will then be reviewed or, if necessary, before this, if circumstances so require. Policies may need to be changed as the coronavirus situation or regulatory guidelines change.

It is not possible for customers outside the University community to enter the campuses and library units during the 1st period, nor can anyone enter the library unit without the access card / key card. For our non-university customers who do not have access to campuses, a pick-up service point for the ordered, loanable material will be arranged at the Hervanta unit, from where the ordered material can be picked up without a key card. Pick-up service and ordering material is only possible for customers outside the University community. More detailed instructions for ordering and picking up will be issued in early August.

Until the beginning of August, it is possible for members of the University community to order material for retrieval according to the current model. Members of the Tampere University community can now order normally borrowed 14-day and 28-day loans with this order form. Ordering and picking up books from the library's pick-up points is currently only possible for members of the University community (does not apply to open university or open polytechnic students).

Please remember to take into account the summer breaks of the library's services and prepare in advance for the acquisition of the necessary material or service. Read more info from the library's website. 

Despite the exceptions, the library's online services operate normally.
