The newspaper collection with the attached reading room is one of the Library's services. Newspapers can be read in the (newspaper) reading room located on the 0-floor in the University's main building, Kalevantie 4. The reading room can be reached through the main entrance hall of the main building. Newspapers are not loaned out.
The collection includes the most important Finnish and foreign dailies. More detailed information is available on the newspaper list.
To read a particular newspaper, one has to fill out an online form or a printed blue order form and leave it in the order box on the reading room desk.
In the reading room, there are also microfilms for reading. It is possible to make photocopies of both original and microfilmed papers. Microfilms can also be saved to a USB memory stick using the computer attached to the microfilm reader.
