NB! Since August 30 the library is open for EKA members. For persons outside EKA we offer remote service, ie books can be borrowed upon reservation by e-mail and they can be picked up from the security desk of the EKA building. The books can be returned to the return box at the same place.

Also the library continues to help everyone at a distance: responds to information requests, helps to find digital materials, scans from books, prints etc. Visit also our e-library and use different resources you can find there.

Please send all information requests to the e-mail library@artun.ee
