When you know the name of a book, journal or an article, but you are not sure how to get hold of a copy, you can search the UEF Finna to find it. UEF Finna grants you access to both print and electronic materials. You can also search for online publications using Google.
Rights to use
Purchased e-materials are available to all customers in the campus networks and campus libraries. Outside the campus networks you need to identify yourself via UEF Finna. This concerns UEF students and staff members. Identification is performed by logging in to the UEF Finna with your personal UEF username. The KUH staff members sign in using remote access.
Print materials are available for all customers for reading and borrowing.
Publications open to all
Scientific articles are published increasingly with open access. Various services and tools are available to track open scientific publications. Read more about these on FinELib's website: http://finelib.fi/negotiations/alternative-access/
If material is not part of your library's collections
Articles, journals and books outside the UEF Library's collections can be accessed in many ways. Via UEF Finna, you can send requests to the Legal deposit copy collection or the National Repository Library. Remember also to check out other libraries near your location.
You can also order an article or a book from the Interlibrary services for a fee.
List of fees
The university library's material is free of charge to use. Legal deposit copies are also free. Ordering a book from the National Repository Library costs 1–3 euros. Interlibrary service fees are determined according to a separate list of fees.
