Libraries and return boxes are closed from 27 June to 2 August

All Oulu University Library units are closed from 27 June to 2 August, 2020 due to the implementation of a new library system. The book return boxes outside the library entrances will also be out of use 27 June – 2 August.

Oulu University Library will introduce a new library system this summer, and at the same time the collections of Oulu University Library and Oulu University of Applied Sciences Library will be merged into one database. The libraries are closed 27 June – 2 August due to the implementation of the new system. The updated library system will not be apparent to Oulu University Library users, since it will continue to use the familiar Oula-Finna interface. Current loan and user information is automatically transferred into the new system, but all requests for on-loan items will be cancelled with the implementation of the new library system. Also favourites and searches saved in Oula-Finna will not be transferred to the new library system. Read more: New library system in summer

The library will automatically renew your loans in summer (1 June – 31 August), if your borrowing rights have not been suspended and there are no pending requests for the items you have checked out. No late fees will be incurred during the library closure. Read more: Library’s summer services, opening hours and closure (27 June – 2 August)

We wish you a sunny summer!
