Making requests for materials available in the library

Library users can make on-shelf requests in Oula-Finna for materials available in the library. Requests are processed on a daily basis, but processing times may be longer especially at the beginning of semester when there are a lot of requests. Often the book can be obtained faster by picking it up from the shelf yourself.

Due to the large number of requests made at the moment, the processing times of the requests are longer. If you are in hurry and need a book available in the library quickly, the book can often be obtained faster by picking it up directly from the shelf yourself. If you already requested the book in Oula-Finna – no problem: the request is automatically removed when you borrow the book.

The requested books on the library shelf are freely available to all patrons before the on-self request has been processed by the library clerk. Thus, an on-self request for a book does not prevent a patron on site at the library from borrowing the book.

You will be notified by e-mail when the material you have requested can be picked up on the requested items shelf. Requests on the requested items shelf are arranged in alphabetical order according to the patron's surname. Please remember to borrow the requested book!
