Library card

The collections and services of Oulu University Library are generally available for use by everyone.

Library users are required to have a library card. Students and staff of the University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences get a library card through the Tuudo mobile application. Other library users get a library card in the library by proving their identity.

The contact information of students and staff are updated in the library’s user register directly from the student and human resources information systems of the University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences. Other library users must notify the library of any changes to their name or address. It is also advisable to inform the library immediately of a lost library card.
