Do you know where you have your library card? There are three options: Tuudo app, student card and plastic library card. You can also always find your card on HAMK Finna by logging in with your HAMK ID once you have added your card there. The library card is needed for loaning printed books. You can use e-books and e-magazines online on HAMK Finna by logging in with your HAMK ID.

Library card In Tuudo app

If you started your studies last autumn and you have Tuudo app in your phone, you have probably activated your library card there. You can find it as a barcode on the Library-tab. If you do not have a library card yet and you have a finnish social security number, you can download Tuudo and activate your library card there. You can find the instructions here. If you do not have a library card yet and no finnish social security number, fill out the library card application here. You’ll receive instructions for adding your virtual card on Tuudo.

Student card as a library card

Your student card must be separately activated as your library card by visiting the library customer service. You can find the customer service hours in each library on HAMK Finna and the library website.

Plastic library card

If you do not want to use Tuudo or have a student card, your library card is a plastic card. If you do not know what versions of the library card you have or if you have a card at all, please contact the library customer service.

Always have your library card with you in HAMK Finna – just add it there first!

Whatever version of the library card you have, you can always find it on HAMK Finna too. Log in to HAMK Finna with your HAMK ID and choose “Library Cards” under “Your Account”. You can loan books by showing that barcode at the self-check machine. When you log in to HAMK Finna the first time, you will first be asked to add your library card to your HAMK Finna account. Now is the best time to do it if you haven’t yet! If you cannot remember your pin-code, get a new one on the HAMK Finna frontpage.
