About the Library

The University Library is for those studying or working at the Åland University of Applied Sciences. You can borrow course literature, look for material in online databases or make an appointment with a librarian for help with information retrieval.

The university library is in the same building as the Mariehamn City Library. The university library’s material is integrated into the Mariehamn City Library collections with the exception of the university’s coursebooks and theses which are in their own section — the coursebook library.  

The coursebook library can be found farthest in on the ground floor behind the information desk. As well as course literature and theses, there are also three study desks with computers reserved for the university’s students.

At the Mariehamn City Library

In addition to the university’s study desk the library provides small study rooms suitable for group work. The library also has very generous opening hours and a large selection of fiction and non-fiction, journals, films and more. 

Borrowing books and journals 

The lending of all materials is via Mariehamn City Library. The Åland University of Applied Sciences’ books and journals are searchable in the library catalogue,  bibliotek.ax where you can also find material from all libraries on Åland. 

Library and information service

The university library provides  expert guidance information retrieval for all students at the Åland University of Applied Sciences. Teachers, researchers and other staff at the university also have access to the university library services.  

Much of the material at the university library is available in electronic form via the university library website.
