Ebooks: E-books at the University of Oulu

E-book guides

Here you can find information about the various e-book services that are available at the University of Oulu.

Different services have different terms of use for example with regard to the number of simultaneous users and printing rights.

When you login with your University of Oulu user ID (Haka Login), you have access to the electronic resources also from outside the University of Oulu Network.

1. Almost all services enable reading in web browser.

2. Most service providers enable the downloading of books to the user's own laptop computer, tablet or USB flash drive. This way they can be read later without an internet connection. For reading and downloading copyrighted material different programs may be required, depending on the e-book collection and platform in question. In most cases downloading requires:

  • Personal Adobe ID
  • Adobe Digital Editions application
  • Personal user ID to the e-book service in question
  • Reader application.

3. Some service providers have an app for borrowing and reading ebooks.


The bought ebooks can be found by title in the Oula-Finna database.
