Library User Guide: Interlibrary service

Interlibrary loan service for customers

We provide material not included in 3UAS libraries' collections as an interlibrary loan service from other libraries. However, we do not provide interlibrary loans from libraries in the Helsinki metropolitan area.

Interlibrary loan service is free for you if you study or work in Metropolia, Laurea or Haaga-Helia. Otherwise, the charge for the interlibrary loan service shall be in accordance with the price list

Ordering materials from one 3UAS library to another is not interlibrary service.
