Getting started:

  1. Firstly you’ll need a library card. All you need to do is fill-in the application form online and collect the card from Industria 1 when you need it, at the earliest after two working days. You will need to bring a photo ID with you when you collect your library card. 
  2. Now that you have your library card sorted, head over to Masto-Finna online catalogue where you’ll find our digital resources and information about the print collection or check out the Lahti UAS ResearchKit for easy access to information.
  3. To access the digital resources from outside the campus you’ll need to login to Masto-Finna using your AD-account [Haka login]. Remember to attach your library card to your AD account when you login for the first time.  You can also renew and reserve books or make online payments through Masto-Finna.
