3UAS: Changes in 3UAS libraries spring 2019

New in 3UAS libraries

Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia libraries (3UAS-libraries) will introduce a joint library system in May 2019. Customer registers and printed collections are unified. This page gives information about the changes.


Self-service machine are working again in Haaga, Pasila and Malmi

We are working hard to get the machines in Vierumäki and Porvoo in working order again as soon as possible.

If you use Haka login to HH Finna, please reconnect your library card to your HH Finna account. First select Haka login. Then go to 'My account' > 'Library cards' > remove library card > connect library card.

After reconnecting your library card, you'll be able to make reservations in HH Finna.


HH Finna mostly back in business. However, you can't pay library fees online on HH Finna or use self-service machines in campus libraries.

Databases have been unified in to the new library system.

Joint collection

  • You can search for books located in all 3UAS libraries at the same time
  • Libraries' own search interfaces: Haaga-Helia Finna, Laurea Finna and MetCat Finna are the gateways to the joint collection


  • Each 3UAS library subscribes licensed e-material, which is only accessible for their own students and staff
  • Remote access to this licensed material requires your own UAS student number and password
  • Most of the licensed material can be used locally in campuses

Joint customer register

Finding your own library customer information

  • If you log in with HAKA (Haaga-Helia student or staff member), information can be found via HH Finna
  • If you log in with your library card number (other customers), information can be found via any 3UAS Finna  

Customers who have registered to more than one 3UAS library

  • Information about loans and fees are unified
  • There can be only one active library card and email address
  • After the unification, check Your Account information and your active library card number in Finna. If you are not able to log in or have other questions, please contact the library.

Privacy statement and customer rights

  • All customers will get an email about the transfer of customer information
  • If a customer doesn’t want their information to be transferred to the joint register, they should inform the library
  • Customer information can be removed from the register if there are no active loans or unpaid fees
