The Nunnankatu library will move

In autumn 2017, Novia University of Applied Sciences in Turku will move from Nunnankatu to Henrikinkatu 7. The library will move from Nunnankatu to the Asa Library at Vänrikinkatu 3 A, which is part of the Åbo Akademi University Library. From 1.8.2017, Åbo Akademi University Library will offer library services for Novia in Turku.

The last open day for Tritonia Nunnankatu will be 24.5.2017. The loan period for books borrowed from the library will be longer than usual, since they cannot be renewed during a transition period, when they will not be visible in Finna. Books can be returned to Nunnankatu campus until Midsummer. From August, the Asa library at Vänrikinkatu 3 A will serve students and staff at Novia in Turku. From the autumn, books, journals and e-resources for Novia’s education in Turku can be found in the Alma portal of Åbo Akademi University.

The Tritonia Express and interlibrary loans service to and from Nunnankatu will end by 2.5.2017. The interlibrary loans service between Tritonia and Åbo Akademi University Library will continue as usual.
