Library is preparing for the move - get ready for changes!


The refurbished and new premises in Campus House will be completed in autumn 2018. The preparations for the move have already begun. Because of the preparations, we have to limit libraries’ opening hours already in May.

SeAMK Library will serve patrons in the Campus House in autumn 2018

All the collections and services of both Campus Library and Health Library are moving to the new premises. The present library operations and services of the Health Library in Mediwest building will come to an end. Agriculture Library is moving to Campus House next year and its operations will cease in Ilmajoki Campus.

Self-service in the new library

Patrons may borrow and return books and pick up requests independently in the new library. Library staff will help patrons find information as usual. As we are going to start using new technology, we have to provide every book with a RFID label. This will take approximately two months.

Changes in opening hours starting from May 16

Because of the tagging, all library units will have changes in opening hours already in May. Going through the collections requires staff; therefore we have to restrict opening hours and services. There are many changes in libraries’ opening hours during spring. Please check the hours before your library visit!

  • Campus Library 16.5.-1.6: reservation pickups and returns Mon-Fri 12.00-14.00

Don’t return your loans – help us move

Utilise the long loan periods and return your loans to the new library in Campus House in autumn. This way you’ll help us move.

However, during the time library is closed, you can return books to the book drop in the front of Campus Library in Frami A or to the book drop by the front door between Frami buildings A and B. Watch the video of the book drop location.

After Health Library is closed, the loans must be returned to Campus Library in Frami A (Kampusranta 9 A).

NB! In summertime your loans won’t be returned from the library system daily.

Contact information during the time libraries are closed

As the libraries are closed, you may contact us by email or phone. Library’s chat service will be shut down on May 16th.
