Guidelines for course book acquisition
The Library in Helsinki acquires one book per five attendees on a course, but not more that 25 copies.
A course book, with a new edition published every year, is acquired only every second year.
Two copies of course books used in language and literature courses are acquired.
E-books are acquired as a complement to the print copies if they are available with a multi-user lisence in one of the platforms that the library uses.
The library can order institutional copies, but the institutions pay the copies themselves. Please notify us if a copy is required to the institution.
