HAMK Library Collections

You can find all HAMK library collections in our online library HAMK Finna.

To access the electronic material (e-books, e-journals, databases) you will need to log in to HAMK Finna with your HAMK username and password.

For printed material, as a HAMK library customer, you can use all the material in all HAMK campus libraries free of charge. You can make reservations for books located in any of the campus libraries and choose which campus you want to pick them up from.

More information about loan services, overdue fines and inter-library loans in the Loan and Renew section on the library website.

Help with Information Searching

As a part of your studies you will get guidance to help you find reliable information for your studies. You can also always come to the library information desk for help.

On the library website there are detailed instructions about finding the right information sources. Please read the “Why…”, “How…” and “What…” articles in the Help with information searching section on the library website.

Library Self-service

As a HAMK student you will be able to use the library outside of the library opening hours. This is called library self-service. The campus libraries of Evo, Forssa, Lepaa, Mustiala. Riihimäki and Valkeakoski are on self-service only.

You can access library self-service if you have a valid library card, your library fees are under 10 euros and you have a valid key card to the campus.

During the self-service hours you will be able to stay and study at the library, borrow and return books using the borrowing machine and pick up and borrow your reservations.
