Do you already know LibKey tools? Quicker access to articles with AI help

University of Vaasa subscribes to LibKey, a set of tools for faster and more convenient access to e-journals and articles. With these AI-based tools, you can seamlessly access both subscription-based and open access articles in just one click.

The LibKey tools include:

  • LibKey Discovery enables one-click access to article PDFs in Finna’s article search: Click on “PDF Full text” to open the article directly in PDF format in your browser:

    PFD_Full_Text_in_Finna
  • LibKey Link provides one-click access to full-text articles from specific research databases available at the university (ProQuest ABI Inform, all EBSCO article databases, Scopus, ScienceDirect, and Web of Science) as well as from Google Scholar. Just follow the "Check Full Text" link in the databases:

    Check_Full_Text
  • LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that offers immediate access to full-text articles as you browse the web. It detects when you find a scholarly article (e.g. on a publisher’s website, in Wikipedia, etc.) and provides a direct link to the full text if it's available through the university’s subscriptions. If the article is available, click on the logo to open full text:

    LibKey_Nomad_logo  LibKey_Nomad_logo

Changes in the validity period of the library cards

We have made changes to the data protection notice for the customer register of Tritonia regarding expired library cards and inactive customers. More information can be found in paragraph 7 of the data protection notice, which is available in Finnish (Tietoturvaseloste: Tietosisältö ja säilytysajat) and Swedish (Dataskyddsmeddelande: Datainnehåll och tid ör bevarande av uppgifter).

Are you writing your thesis?

Students writing their thesis are entitled to free interlibrary loans for their thesis provided that they are registered customers of Tritonia and the interlibrary loan request is made in Tritonia. This applies to:

  • students of University of Vaasa writing their Bachelor's or Master's thesis
  • students of VAMK University of Applied Sciences writing their thesis
  • students of Novia University of Applied Sciences writing their thesis 

Students are obliged to submit to the interlibrary loans service a certificate with the supervisor’s signature to prove that they have begun to write their thesis. Alternatively, the supervisor can send an e-mail with the student’s name, university, degree programme and type of thesis to the interlibrary loans service.

NB! Starting April 1, 2024, students can obtain five (5) interlibrary loan items per thesis for free against the certificate. The rest of the interlibrary loans (books or articles) requested for the thesis are paid by the student.

Interlibrary loans service offers print material, which is to be picked up at Tritonia and returned to Tritonia.

More information, Interlibrary loans.
