The e-books of the Library are acquired primarily for the students and staff of the University of Helsinki. For full access you need a user account for the University information system. With the user account you can also access the e-resources via remote connection. You can search e-books like any other books, from Helka-Database or you can use Booknavigator for searching.
If you are a walk-in customer, you can access the e-resources at the Library premises either by using the computers reserved for visitors or on your own laptop via a wireless HUPNet connection. The customer service desk can provide you with a temporary HUPNet account.
Most of the Helsinki University Library's e-books can be read via the internet without a separate device or programme. Check the Compare tab above to get an overview of how to use the e-books acquired by the Helsinki University Library.

Many e-book services require a username and password when downloading a book to your own device. You have to create an ID to the service - you cannot use your Helsinki University username and password.
