If you feel there is something missing from our collections, make an acquisition request.

We favour e-books over print books. Of all the books we acquire in our collections we always try to get the electronic version primarily. Also, acquiring an e-book is fast so that usually the book is available on the same day after we decide to purchase it.

In urgent cases we recommend you to explore the possibilities to order or borrow what you need from other libraries since acquisition of new items can take some time.


Aalto University faculty members

Use our all-inclusive service Aalto Direct for all books, journals, articles etc. It’s free of charge and we will deliver what you need straight to your workplace at Aalto University.

Teachers, please inform us of new textbook titles used during your courses.

In addition, we can purchase books for your unit on your behalf. After taking care of the acquisition process we send the books and forward the invoice to your unit.
