Interlibrary loans

Material not found in your own municipality's library can be obtained as an interlibrary loan.

A fee is charged from an interlibrary loan. The sending library will define lending period and terms of use. The material will take a few days to arrive. Set books in demand may take longer. You may also want to take a look at what HAMK library has to offer.
