Main campus self-service library will open 14th May 2020

JAMK Library staff will provide only online service for now.

Self-service library

Main Campus Library will serve as self-service library starting from 14th May 2020. Follow the Library’s notices about opening hours. Other library units are closed. Entry into the building is via main door D1. Follow JAMK’s instructions.

Please visit us only if you have no symptoms and if necessary! Studying and spending time in the library is forbidden, computers and multifunction devices are not in use. Remember to keep a safe distance.

Customer service can be reached primarily via email. We will also service you via phone and chat Mon-Fri 10-15. There will most likely be delays.

Overdue fines

We will not charge our customers overdue fines accumulating during 16th March – 9th September 2020. You can renew your loans by logging into Janet. Login instructions.

Borrowing, returning and renewing

Books are borrowed and returned using the Main Library’s self-service machines. Please use the hand sanitizers you can find near the machines. If you cannot enter the building, you can use the outside book return drop box in front of the Main Library (door F). The drop box is emptied Mon-Fri. You can renew your loans 15 times (normally 10), if there are no reservations on them.


We will move all reserved books into the Main Library’s reserved books shelf where they can be picked up and borrowed self-service. (Reservation pick-up from customer service is not available.) If requested, we aim to deliver books from Lutakko Library and Music Campus Library to the Main Library. Books from Tarvaala Library will not be delivered to the Main Library. Books will not be delivered daily, so there will most likely be delays. When needed, cancel your reservations by logging into Janet.


The Library’s vast electronic collection can be used as per usual via Janet.
