Interlibrary services

Interlibrary services allows library users to request materials from libraries all over Finland.

Interlibrary services work in two ways:

Laurea Library customers can ask to order publications from other finnish libraries

The Laurea Library can order interlibrary loans from other finnish libraries according to the following ‎principles:‎

  •     Loans are not provided from public libraries.‎
  •     Interlibrary loan requests can be made only for material not available in Laurea Library ‎collections.‎

To make a request for interlibrary loan, please contact your library. Interlibrary loans ‎must be returned to the same library unit they were requested.‎

Service fees

  • Interlibrary loans and article copies are free of charge for Laurea students and staff.    
  • Interlibrary loans and article copies for non-Laurea customers 10 € / loan or article.    
  • Interlibrary loans and article copies from National Repository Library are free of charge for everyone.‎‎‎

Other libraries can order publications from Laurea Library.

Laurea Library gives books from main collection for interlibrary loans and sends ‎photocopies to other libraries upon request. Books from short loan collection are given as interlibrary loans to Haaga-Helia and Metropolia libraries. Interlibrary loans or article copies are not sent outside Finland. ‎

Libraries may request loans by form. The form is in Finnish.
