Library improves availability of course books – objective: shorter request queues

07.01.2019 Common, Library

Owing to the feedback received, we aim at improving the availability of course books by acquiring more of them.

As before, we try to acquire course books in electronic form with unlimited concurrent user access licences. However, if a course book is only available in printed form, we will acquire one lendable copy of the course book per five students enrolled for the course, though no more than 30 copies of one title. Previously the ratio was one book per ten students enrolled for the course and no more than 25 copies of one title. In addition, we always try to acquire one or more reading room copies of each course book.

Library’s updated collection programme (in Finnish) can be found from our home page.
