1. Create your library card

Students using the Tuudo app (University of Vaasa and Novia)

As a student of University of Vaasa and Novia, you will find your library card in the Tuudo app. Download the app, log in and create your library card in the app. Remember to create a PIN code and connect the library card to your Finna account (see sections 2 and 3).

If you already have a library card, Tuudo should find it automatically. If you want to use Tuudo, you can add your card manually with the library card number and PIN code. 

If you do not have a Finnish personal identity code, please use the library card application below and then add your library card to Tuudo manually, if you want to use the app.

Tuudo is not presently in use in VAMK.

Other students and staff of University of Vaasa, VAMK and Novia as well as other HAKA users

Create the library card by filling out the application form below. Log in with your HAKA credentials (your university's username and password).



When all information is entered, the system automatically creates a library card for you. The card will be sent to your e-mail. Continue by creating a PIN code and connecting your card to your account in Finna (see sections 2 and 3).

Other users

You can fill out the application form without logging in. In this case, you need to come to the service desk in the library to show your identification in order to activate your card. This can be done 3 days after filling out the form at the earliest. After receiving your library card, you need to create a PIN code.

The card is individual, and the borrower is always responsible for their loans.
