About the library

Åbo Akademi University Library is an academic library that primarily serves students and faculty at Åbo Akademi University and Novia University of Applied Sciences.

The library, which also is open to the public, opened in 1919 and consists today of four service units, all located on the university campus in Turku. Since its start, the library has had a status as a legal depository library, making the domestic publications collection almost complete. In total, the collections comprise over two million printed books and journals, and access to tens of thousands licensed e-journals and hundreds of thousands of e-books.

Åbo Akademi University and Novia in Vaasa and Pietarsaari are served by Tritonia.
