This guide is aimed at new students at Tampere Universities.
The guide contains essential and concise information about Tampere University Library and its services.
Use our TuniLib-database to locate printed books and journals as well as links to various e-books. You can also place holds on books and renew your loans online in TuniLib.
Please note that in order to place a hold on a book from a particular collection (Hervanta, Linna, TAMK), you must activate your library card for that collection.
All Library resources (electronic and printed, except for the printed collection at TAMK) can be searched through our Andor search portal.
Tampere University Library operates on six different campuses all around Tampere. Read more about our units and their contact info and opening hours on our Library website.
Some library units allow the use of the library outside official opening hours. As a member of the higher education community at Tampere University, contact the campus information desk for more information.
Your student card is also your library card. If you are still waiting for your official student card, you can apply for a temporary library card.
Activate your student card to function as a library card at the Library service desk.
Once you have activated your student card, you can use the self-service machines to borrow books. Return the books with the self-service returning machine. If you need help, don't hesitate to ask the Library staff!
