New SeAMK-Finna – this is what changed


New version of SeAMK Library’s web service SeAMK-Finna has been published on August 17th, 2021. The visual look, functionalities, texts, search and instructions have been revised. We have made the service more accessible, as well.

New feature – logging in with Finna ID

There are three options for logging in to SeAMK-Finna:

  • SeAMK students and staff log in always through Haka login with their personal SeAMK credentials
  • other patrons can choose
    • either logging in with with an email address
    • or logging in with a Finna ID

Haka login and and ordering a single-use login link to email have been available already earlier on SeAMK-Finna. Now we have introduced a new feature, logging in with Finna lD. We wanted to offer it as an alternative to the email login. Other patrons than students and staff at SeAMK may create a new Finna ID and use it on SeAMK-Finna.

It is not possible any more to log in with Eepos library card credentials to SeAMK-Finna. If you have used this login, you can now change it to logging in with a Finna ID.

Eepos libraries removed from the search results

On the previous SeAMK-Finna version, the users could check the availability of Eepos libraries’ collections. This has now been removed from the new version because of minor usage. In addition, we wanted to avoid any confusion in the search results and make the search clearer. On the new SeAMK-Finna version we only offer search results from SeAMK Library’s collections or open publications on the internet.

Information about the staff publications is available on Ministry of Education and Culture’s web pages

The tab, SeAMK publication register, has been removed from the search results. Information about SeAMK staff’s publications can be found on the Juuli portal (starting from the year 2012) and portal.

Information about staff’s publications 2006-2018 is still available on the old SeAMK-Finna.

Clearer instructions help the user

We have checked all SeAMK-Finna instructions and made the structure and texts clearer. You can find quick guide, more detailed instructions on basic and advanced search, as well as on logging in, your account and favourites and saved searches under Help.
