To borrow books from the library you need the SeAMK Library’s library card. The card is personal, free of charge and you must have it always with you when you wish to borrow books. You cannot use library’s self check-out machines without the library card and PIN code.

We recommend you to order library card in advance by filling in the application form. Wait for our confirmation email and come to visit the library to pick-up your card and to present your ID card.

Take a screenshot of your library card barcode and save it on your smart phone. Then you’ll have the card always with you. See instructions on library’s web pages.

If you are a member of the student union SAMO and have a student card, it is possible to use it as a library card as well.

Using the library and resources

On SeAMK-Finna, library’s search service, you’ll find printed and electronic books and journals, as well as theses and e-resources.

LogKirjaston verkkopalvelun SeAMK-Finnan logoin with your SeAMK user account and you will have access to all e-resources. When you login for the first time, add your library card to your account.
