From the beginning of February, you can reserve the material you need directly in the library's Andor search service. You can now also reserve the material on the shelf. The library's facilities are still closed, but you can pick up the material you have reserved from pick-up service points.

Begining from 1.2.2021 you can make a reservation for the 14-day and 28-day loan period books on the shelf yourself directly in the Andor search service.

To make a reservation you need a valid library card. You will receive an e-mail notification when the reserved material arrives at the pick-up service point of your choice. In this exceptional situation, it may take several working days for the material to arrive.  

Library pick-up service points in Hervanta and TAMK Main Campus are open Mon-Fri from 8 to 16. The pick-up service point of Linna unit in Idea on the Kalevantie side will be open on Mondays from 8 to 18, Tue-Fri from 8 to 16. 

At the pick-up service point, you have a self service machine to borrow reserved material, so please make sure you know the working PIN-number of your library card for borrowing.

You can reach the pick-up service point of the Hervanta unit during the opening hours (Mon-Fri 8-16) without a key card, for other units of the library you need a key card for the campus.

If the door does not open with your access card, contact the information on the campus in question to check / activate the access right. 

You can get information about the campus access rights from this intranet page. Contact info on all campus info desks can be found from this link. 

The current online reserving form for books on the shelf will be discontinued on Friday 29.1. afternoon. Please place your reservations of the material you need well in advance of the afternoon.

  • Follow the safety guidelines indoors and follow the restrictions on number of persons in limited indoors space. No unnecessarily multiple people in the same space. 
  • Transactions at the pick-up service point must be waited in line outside the premises, observing the safety guidelines, if there are already multiple people in the premises. 
  • Hand desinfection is available at pick-up service points - use it! 
  • If you have any respiratory symptoms or feel ill, do not pick up the book yourself indoors.
