We are invoicing unpaid overdue and reservation fees in the beginning of November. You can avoid the invoicing by paying your fees before that. Web payment on UEF Primo is a quick and easy way to pay the fees online. It is possible if the amount of fees is at least one euro. You can also pay the fees at the Joensuu and Kuopio campus libraries’ customer service with a payment card. Payment is not possible in the KUH Medical Library because there is no cash service.
