Interlibrary loan for Libraries

The Library delivers loans or copies of the collections to libraries outside Helsinki. Unfortunately we do not loan journals, short loans, reference books, archive material nor material from special collections.

Interlibrary loans are subject to a charge according to the library service price list.
