Exceptional situation (edit. 18th December 2020): Many foreign libraries are closed or they suspend the loan of books via interlibrary loan and other document delivery services. Delivery times may be longer than usual. National Library's interlibrary services are closed between 21st of Dec and 31st of Dec 2020. More information from firstname.lastname@example.org
At the ILL borrowing services of the National Library of Finland, we order loans and reproductions for you from other libraries in Finland or abroad.
We will find the work required for you and get you a loan or a copy as affordably and quickly as possible. It is also possible to order material that is not available at that moment in time at the National Library.
We will send you an arrival notice when the material ordered can be picked up from the library’s customer service point. The interlibrary service fee is paid when picking up the material.
We will automatically renew all interlibrary loans and will notify you when the loan can no longer be renewed.

Libraries can order loanable materials or reproductions for their customers through the National Library of Finland’s ILL lending service.
We do not send out National Collection materials as interlibrary loans but we can make reproductions of them. We will send microfilms of newspapers in the National Collection as reading room loans only when they are unavailable elsewhere.
