JAMKO's New Student's Guide

information for new students starting in JAMK UAS


JAMK has a Library on each campus. The Library collections complete each other and take into consideration JAMK’s curricula for degree programmes. The best way to find the material you are looking for, e.g. a text book, is by using Janet database.

JAMK Library’s extensive and up-to-date collections contain printed and electronic information from different fields of study. The collections include books, journals, theses, databases and sheet music. You can use electronic materials, such as databases, e-books and e-journals, with your computer, tablet or smart phone also at home whenever suitable to you. Access electronic materials by logging in to Janet with your JAMK ID. See more on e-resources and remote access.

You can activate your JAMKO student card or your Jyväskylä City Library (Keski Libraries) card or your Jyväskylä University Library card to work as your JAMK Library card. For further information, see Borrow, renew, reserve.

Borrowing and returning books should mainly be done at the Library’s self-service stations. You can renew loans and reserve material by logging in to Janet with your JAMK ID or library card. If the book you need is on loan, you can reserve it to be picked up at the JAMK Library location of your choice. Loan periods vary from 2 to 4 weeks. Course book (= text book) short loans and some reference collection titles can only be borrowed overnight or for the weekend. Always check due dates in your checked out items receipt or your Janet account and remember to return all checked out items on time. That way you are fair to your fellow students.

Studies at JAMK include information seeking guidance and also other services that help advance your studies. You can ask the Library staff for help if needed. The Library offers also information retrieval guidance one-to-one or in small groups for students working on their thesis, provided that the students have already participated in curriculum-based information seeking lectures. In the Library’s information seeking guides you will find sources and tips for your own field of study.

The Main Library’s opening hours are the longest. The Main Library is also self-service on Saturdays. Check out the Library’s opening and customer service hours.
