Interlibrary service

Interlibrary service is lending service between libraries.


If the material you need is not available in 3AMK libraries (Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia) or any other library in the Capital Region, you can request it for interlibrary loan through us.

Interlibrary loan service is free for students and staff of Metropolia, Laurea and Haaga-Helia. Otherwise, see the charge for the interlibrary loan service in the price list. Return the interlibrary loan to the same library where you ordered it.


Fill in the interlibrary loan service form or send email to kaukopalvelu(at)
