Search

Library uses several different services to acquire e-journals for its collections. Here you will find more information on the e-journal service features and the software applications they may require.

Finding e-journals

All e-journals are available in HAMK Finna when you login using your HAMK ID. Most of the e-journals can be found using HAMK Finna basic search, or you can use the Browse e-journals feature. For a more extensive search inside an e-journal service, use its own search features.

Finding individual articles

For vocational and scientific articles, use HAMK Finna International e-materials search. Limit your results with the Full text available feature to include only the articles we have access to.

Software required

E-journal services can be used both with a computer and a mobile device. If you use a web browser to access your e-journals, no additional software is required.

If your e-journal or article format is PDF, make sure that Adobe Reader has been installed on your device.
