Introducing the library

The only academic library in the region, Lappeenranta Academic Library provides library services in different specialist fields for researchers and the general public. Lappeenranta Academic Library is one of the European Documentation Centres in Finland and the joint library for the LUT University (LUT) and Saimaa University of Applied Sciences (Saimaa UAS). The library has an extensive collection of literature titles and journals, both in print and electronic format.

Lappeenranta Academic Library's roots are based on the library and information work of LUT and Saimaa UAS several decades ago. The joint library for the Lappeenranta University of Technology and Saimaa University of Applied Sciences came true since Saimaa UAS moved to same campus with LUT.

Instead of maintaining two libraries "vying" with each other, we decided to combine our forces including our extensive knowledge, our expertise and our collections. Lappeenranta Academic Library celebrated the opening on the 1st of August 2011.

Lappeenranta Academic Library provides also library and information services for companies and private persons. The libraryis located in the LUT University building on Skinnarila campus. The Lappeenranta Academic Library had a branch library on the Linnala campus of Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in Imatra till 16.5.2019.
