JAMK's library system will change in July

The implementation of the new system will affect the library services in many ways. The Library is closed 19th June 2020 – 2nd August 2020.

JAMK Library will change its library system to a new Alma system in July. The implementation of the new system will affect the library services in many ways, and we will inform about these effects later. JANET will remain as the search service for customers.

The Library is closed 19th June 2020 – 2nd August 2020. We will not charge our customers overdue fines.

No reservations, renewals and online payments on JANET

Making reservations on printed books on JANET will be paused on 22nd June 2020. Please note that reservations that have not arrived until this date will not move over to the new system. If you have not received an arrival notice, you will have to make the reservation again in August.

When the Library is closed, customers cannot renew loans on JANET and overdue fines cannot be paid online.

Return books into the drop boxes

You can return your loans into the drop box by the F-door on Main Campus. The books will be removed from your loans when the system is in use again.

Save favourites and searches from JANET before 22nd June 2020

If you have added favourites or saved searches on JANET, they will disappear during the system change. You can download them from JANET under My Account -> Profile and import them back after the service break.

Alternatively, you can send the list of your favourite books to your e-mail. Log in to JANET, click Favourites, select all or certain books and send them to your e-mail.

E-materials available as usual

E-books, e-journals, e-articles and databases on JANET are available as usual during the system change.

Utilize the Library’s extensive e-collection!

Delays in the availability of new materials

Because new books cannot be added to the database, they cannot be found on JANET immediately. New books will be catalogued into JANET as soon as possible after the system change.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the system change.

We will inform you about the system change on our website jamk.fi/kirjasto
