E-resources guide

Find suitable e-books and other resources for your needs.

Who may access

The e-resources provided by the library can be used via Jamk's network by the students, teachers and other staff of Jamk University of Applied Sciences. Remote access off-campus is also possible with Jamk username and password. Other visitors at the library can use most of the e-resources on specific computers reserved for the purpose.

Each e-resource has its own specific terms of use and license that the users must follow.
