This is what HAMK read in 2020


We are still compiling library user statistics from 2020, but here is a little taste of what is to come: our most read books, magazines and journals by service provider. These TOP10 lists focus on our collections in English; for a more complete picture, see the Finnish blog post.

The following  TOP10 lists do not include number of use, for service providers have different criteria for their user statistics and the numbers are not commensurable. Full statistics will be published later.
