The materials held in the general collection (marked A) can be loaned for 30 days. Loans can be renewed, also by phone or e-mail, unless there are reservations.

Currently there is no library card, but presentation of identity card is required. Personal data and address are collected in connection with the first loan. Changes of address must be notified.

Loaners are charged for eventual costs of return claims and address queries. Compensation is required for damaged and lost material. Negligence of obligations impedes further loans.

Library of Museum of Finnish Architecture will send overdue notices, notifications of reserved books and bibliographical references by email from 1.9.2010.


Single issues are not loaned except for a small number of double copies. Over ten-year-old bound volumes are available for loan.

Fennica materials (marked F) and those of special collections are not loaned, but they can be read in the library. For weekend study, it is adviseable to reserve material in advance.

Return claim charge: EUR 4,00 for each claim (sent at 14 days' intervals).

Charge for unreturned material (billed in connection with 4th claim): minimum EUR 50 per book.
