Information service

The information service of LUT Academic Library serves the students and staff of LUT and LAB also remotely. The Library staff guides customers in the matters of information searching and information resources free of charge.

Information specialist on duty is available mainly Mon-Fri 10:00-14:00 by e-mail ( or by chat ( You can also book a 30-minute information searching guidance using the web form. The guidance can be arranged remotely.

LibGuides help in many cases, e.g. when you are interested in citing, copyright, standards, e-books or open science. 

In LUT Moodle there is the course called Information searching. Completing the course helps you to find reliable information and to use databases.

Lending services

As a distance student, you should prefer electronic material provided by your university and printed material which is available in the libraries of your neighbouring area (Turku University Library etc.). If you need a printed book which is available only in LUT Academic Library, you can use interlibrary lending services in your near library, which orders the book from Lappeenranta. Note, that interlibrary lending service is subject to charge.

If a distance staff member needs printed materials from LUT Academic Library, please contact:
