3UAS libraries: Resources

Library collections

You can search for printed materials on each UAS's own Finna search service.


The links below take you to all the different e-resources that UAS libraries have acquired for students to use. E-resources include for example article databases, newspaper databases, statistical databases and dictionaries.

Library e-resource guides

There are a lot of e-resources and using them can feel difficult, but you can get help from information searching guides. They offer information on what different databases contain and how you should search information in them. Field specific guides introduce the best resources in a certain field.

What are licensed e-resources?

UAS libraries pay license fees for different e-resources. Typical licensed e-resources are for example e-books, journal and article databases and different kinds of encyclopedias and portals.

Who can use the licensed e-resources

In the library

Anyone visiting the library can use licensed resources on library computers, because on UAS network they are free to use.


Remote access to licensed e-resources, for example from home, is only possible by signing in with your user ID. This means that you will sign in to your own UAS online library and you will get access to its e-resources.

Terms of use

You can learn about the terms of use of each e-resource on the FinELib website, on the websites of individual resources or by asking from the library.

User ID's

Each UAS's IT services are in charge of the user IDs.
