Customers can pick up reservations, and borrow and return print material, on a self-service basis. For the self-service loans machine, you will need your library card and pin code. If you have forgotten your code, you can change it in Finna.

During library opening hours, you can summon library staff for assistance. Customer service is also available via e-mail, phone and chat.

Library facilities and resources

The reading spots, reading rooms and group study rooms will be kept closed. A few PCs are reserved for quick printing and copying is also possible. Remember to disinfect the devices after use with disinfecting wipes for this purpose.

 

Safety

We pay extra attention to the safety of our customers and staff. To prevent infection, we ask our customers to keep a good hand hygiene and keep a distance of 2 m to other customers and staff. About 30 people can visit the library simultaneously.

 

Do not visit the library if you have flu symptoms, even mild symptoms.

 

Due dates

Borrowed books will fall due gradually during the three first weeks in June, to avoid crowding. All short loans are to be returned by 1.6. The changes in the database will be made 18.5. Check due dates for your loans in your own Finna account. During summer, overdue fees will accrue as normal.

 

Remember that you can renew your loans throughout the summer, if there are no reservations! We ask our customers to cancel reservations which are no longer necessary. Reservations that haven’t arrived yet can be cancelled through your Finna account.

 

Reservations that have arrived during the state of emergency can be picked up by 4.6.

 

Returning books

A quarantine time of 72 h is applied to book returns, so observe that books returned through the return box will be handled with a delay, and book returned through the self-service machine will be shown as available in the database during the quarantine time.

 

If you are living elsewhere and cannot renew your loan because it is reserved, you can send the book by mail to the address: Tritonia PL 331 65101 Vaasa. Please also send an e-mail to loans@tritonia.fi.

 

Interlibrary loans

A limited interlibrary loans service is available from 1.6 until Midsummer, we primarily order articles. If you however are in urgent need of an interlibrary loan for your thesis, contact ill@tritonia.fi to check the alternatives. The interlibrary loans service is on vacation 22.6 -31.7.20.

Publishers open additional resources during the Corona pandemic

Several publishers and vendors have during the Corona pandemic opened e-resources for more widely use than usual. Some of the publishers have made their resources accessible for anyone, some have opened additional material for license customers or lifted limitations on the number of simultaneous users, while some have opened only publications related to COVID19 research. 

In our LibGuide, you can easily find resources of interest for University of Vaasa and VAMK: https://uva.libguides.com/additional_access. For Åbo Akademi University and Novia UAS users, resources are being updated on the website https://www.abo.fi/en/library/additional-e-resources-available/.

Access to the newly opened resources is temporary and publisher-specific. Follow the websites for updates.

The International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) maintains a list of accessible e-resources on their website.
