This is what we read in HAMK in 2021


The year 2021 was the second Corona year, which was reflected also in the use of library collections. E-collections were still preferred, and Ebook Central e-books were particularly popular. The most borrowed English title in library collections was Residential landscape architecture. Of the magazines, the top three were Harvard Business Review, Newsweek and Livingetc.

The following TOP10 lists do not record the number of use, for they are not comparable with each other. For more detailed information, please contact the library.

Note. These TOP10 lists have been limited to titles in English only. For the top lists that also include Finnish titles, see the post Näitä HAMK luki 2021.
