As a student in Vaasa, you can find literature for your studies from the Tritonia Academic Library (Yliopistonranta 7) and the Åbo Akademi Library in Academill (Rantakatu 2). You can register as a customer in these two libraries to borrow and reserve books. In Tritonia you can also use the printers and copying machines for a small fee. Through the national search portal you can see if the literature you need is available at other libraries in Finland.
Students who are visually impaired or have a print disability (i.e. dyslexia) may use text books in the format of audio books. Hanken's library uses the services of the Celia library (national library for accessible literature and publishing), and we'll help you register as a user in Celia. Accessing text books as audio books is a service that requires forward planning and a long-term perspective. Contact the library at the start of your studies if this is a service you need. E-mail the library or come see us at the library service desk.
