Almost all of the material that is available on the shelves of the Turku University Library can be loaned out of the library. Exceptions to these are e.g. theses, microfilms, handbooks, some dictionaries and current year's journals. You can use them in the library premises or copy, scan and photograph them to use later.
There are some restrictions in borrowing from the legal deposit collection stored in the library’s closed collections. Fiction, valuable historical books, school textbooks, magazines, or ephemera (ads, posters, calendars, sheet music, etc.) cannot be loaned out of the library. However, you can use and copy, scan and photograph them in the library premises. Please note that there may be restrictions in copying old and valuable books, though taking photos of the pages is allowed.
If an item is a textbook at a university course, the copy in the legal deposit collection cannot be borrowed. Of course, copies of these textbooks are added into the course book collection where you can borrow them.
