Library services on Linnanmaa campus

Library card and printed material

You can borrow material from Oulu University Library with a library card, which you can get from the Pegasus Library service desk. Oamk students can not get the university's library card via Tuudo app, because Tuudo is connected to each university's student information system.

With the university library's library card, you can order books from Oamk Library's general collection via Oula-Finna to be picked up at Linnanmaa Campus. Instructions >>

​Electronic resources

You can use Oamk Library's e-resources remotely by logging in with your Oamk credentials or via VPN connection. Remote access instructions >>
