This guide introduces alternative ways to access articles which are not included in Uniarts Helsinki library subscriptions and databases.
If you are looking for a specific article that was published in a foreign scientific journal, follow these instructions:
Also take note of the following:
Paywalled articles may be openly available somewhere else, e.g. self-archived in university publication archives or repositories.
If the article you need is not available in Uniarts Finna service Arsca, the Helka database or it cannot be found e.g. in the journal’s online archive for free, the library will provide interlibrary loan service if you so request by borrowing the material from another Finnish or a foreign library. The inter-library loan service is available only to Uniarts Helsinki’s researchers, students and staff members. You will receive the article after filling in an interlibrary request form on Artsi.
Interlibrary request form and instructions on Artsi: https://artsi.uniarts.fi/en/library/inter-library-service. See also the interlibrary loan service charges.
Before placing an interlibrary loan request, we recommend that you search the article by following the instructions above.
