Library and information services for staff: Welcome

Visiting the library

Haaga-Helia has a library on all five campuses: Haaga, Malmi, Pasila, Porvoo, and Vierumäki. All 3AMK libraries (Haaga-Helia, Laurea, and Metropolia) are at your service.

Please make sure not to take materials from the library without loaning them using a loaning machine or dealing with a member of library staff. If you want to visit the library or bring a group of students to learn about the library outside its opening hours, please make sure to arrange the matter in advance with the library.

Library card

You need a library card to borrow print items from the library. The same card is used in all 3AMK libraries (Haaga-Helia, Laurea, and Metropolia).

Apply for your library card online and come visit the library. If you're new to Haaga-Helia, contact your unit's information specialist or librarian to arrange a library orientation session and pick-up of your library card. Remember to bring a photo ID with you.

Library cards are personal and the card owner is responsible for all materials borrowed using his or her card. For this reason, we do not recommend that you loan materials borrowed using your card to students, for example.

When you've received your library card, you need to link it to your HH Finna account . See an instruction video on YouTube  .

If you prefer, you can also activate your library card in Tuudo mobile app.

Inter-library loans

Materials from libraries outside of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area can only be received at as inter-library loans. For Haaga-Helia personnel, they are free of charge. However, we do not request inter-library loans from libraries in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.  If the book you are looking for is available at another library in the Helsinki area, contact directly the library in question.
