Library Resources for Faculty
The online catalog, WebVoyage, is available from any computer with Internet access. WebVoyage catalog includes holdings from the Maki Library, Northern Michigan University, Lake Superior State University, and Gogebic Community College. You may also access our e-book collection directly through WebVoyage, once you enter your Finlandia Network User ID and Password.
The library subscribes to a number of print and electronic periodicals. The Maki Library Periodicals List is a listing of the print holdings; it is regularly revised. Contact the Library if you would like to have a copy.
The Library has access to a number of subscription databases. Some are provided to all Michigan libraries as part of the Michigan eLibrary program. Some we subscribe to ourselves. Most of them may also be accessed off-campus. When you click on a link for a particular database, a pop-up screen will ask for a username and password. Use your Finlandia network login here (not your e-mail) to access the database.Films on Demand has a seperate username and password for remote access, please contact us for off-campus access.
Finlandia students, faculty, staff, and former students may request materials from other libraries through Interlibrary Loan. Other borrowers are requested to use their local public library.

Computers & Internet Access
The Library has more than 20 Internet-accessible computers available for students and others to use on a first come-first-served basis. All of these have Microsoft Office software installed. Faculty and staff may print for free from library computers. Students are given three printer cards per semester; each is worth 64 free pages of computer printing. Others are charged 5 cents per page, or a printer card may be purchased for $2.00. If you would like to bring your class to the Library to use the computers, please contact us and we will reserve an appropriate number of computers for use by your students.
Checking Out Materials
A bar coded Finlandia ID or Library Card is needed to check out materials. Faculty may check most materials out until the end of the current semester. A few items, such as A-V equipment, circulate for 3 days.
Using the Voyager online catalog, digital materials may be placed on reserve. Please consult with a librarian for details.
