The Finnish Heritage Agency Library is a research library open to all, specialising in cultural heritage.

We provide information on archaeology and history, ethnology and museology, building preservation, restoration and conservation as well as art history and the history of artefacts.  

You can borrow material from the library with a Helka card. Borrowing e-books requires you to log into the service in the Finnish Heritage Agency Library. The library’s materials are included in the Helka-Finna collection database. The Maritime Museum of Finland’s library operates as part of Information Centre Vellamo in Kotka. Its materials are listed in Kaakkuri-Finna.

The library is a self-service library, but services are available from the library, picture collections and archive’s joint Customer Service desk, as well as by reserving an appointment with library staff.
