You can borrow books by using a self-service lending machine or at the Loan Desk with the help of a circulation attendant.
You have to return or renew your loans at the end of the loan period. In case your loans are overdue you have to pay fines.
Library Card and PIN-code
You need a library card to use the Library. The library card is free and the student card can be activated to work as a library card. The library card is personal and the owner of the card is responsible for the items borrowed. Please inform the Library as soon as possible if your card is lost or if your contact information has changed.
Own loans can be checked in Tutcat-database. There you can also renew your loans and make reservations on books which are lent away.
A PIN-code is required whenever you log into your patron information to renew your loans or place a hold in Tutcat database. If you are logging in using your PIN for the first time, you must enter the default PIN, which is 12345. At the first time you login change the default PIN at the Personal Information page: click the Change PIN button. PINs are alphanumeric and between 5 and 8 characters long. Avoid using special characters. If you do not remember your PIN-code, the default code can be reset at the Loan Desk.
The loan period is five weeks, or two weeks for books marked with a yellow tag. Loan period for theses and journals published before the previous year is two weeks. Journals published this or last year are only for use in the Library.
P Lainauspiste textbooks are available as overnight loan 30 minutes before closing time. Before that you can use them only in the Library. Overnight loans must be returned before 10 am on the Library's next working day. If the Library is closed, the loan can also be left in the return box. Overdue fee is 8 €/book/day.
Tutcat is a database which includes bibliographical data of all printed books and journals held in the library. Our print resources are available to everyone in need of technological and scientific information.
Two week loans can be renewed 2 times, five week loans 4 times and period text books (loan period 8 weeks, only for TUT students) one time.
You will be unable to renew your items if you have:
Loans can be renewed:
In Tutcat you can make reservations for publications currently on loan. You will be notified by email when your reservation is available for collection. Making reservations is free, but if the material is not picked-up, you will be charged 1 €/item.
Borrowed items should be returned or renewed by the due date. When the Library is closed, books may be left at one's own risk in the book-return bin, located beside the Main Building main door. Items left in the book-return bin will be handled on the Library’s next working day. That date will be recorded as the return date.
If you have lost the book on loan, you have to either replace it by a new book or to pay a replacement price.
The patron is responsible for keeping track of the due dates and is therefore liable to pay fees for overdue items even if the patron has not received a reminder.
