Interlibrary loans

The library orders material for students and staff from other libraries as interlibrary loans. The library also loans out materials to other libraries. Interlibrary loans and copies are not sent directly to private customers, but the request must always be made through the local library. Interlibrary loan prices can be found in the service price list.

Interlibrary loans to libraries

Uniarts Helsinki library sends out interlibrary loans to other libraries. Interlibrary loans are sent only outside the Helsinki metropolitan area, with the exception of Sibelius Academy’s Kuopio library, which sends interlibrary loans to everywhere in Finland. Material that has a loan period of 28 days can be loaned out.

Article copies will only be delivered of publications that are not available elsewhere (f.ex. in the National Repository Library). Theses are not available for interlibrary loaning, except in certain cases in the Sibelius Academy’s Helsinki library theses collection (14 day collection) for reading room use.

Use the interlibrary loan form for libraries first and foremost. You can also contact us via e-mail:
