Guidelines for course book acquisition

Literature 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.
