Library Collections

Printed collections (books and journals) in art research are housed on the 2nd floor of the Main Library. Foreign literature are housed on the first floor (read more about the library's collections).

Most of the books, journals, research reports, theses, dissertions and other items in the collections are listed in the Library's own online catalogue JYKDOK. If you need materials that are not listed in JYKDOK, ask a librarian at the circulation or reference desk.

For electronic books, journals and other databases search the NELLI portal. Some of the items listed in NELLI are available in electronic form, some in printed form either at Jyväskylä University Library or as interlibrary loans.

JU students and personnel can access resources from outside the university network. Read more about remote access.
