This is what we read in HAMK in 2023


The use of library e-collections remained steady last year, as well. There was very little change in the e-book titles that made the TOP10-lists, but we were happy to see many newcomers in the printed books list. More magazines were added to our collections last year, and it appears the new selection was successful: while Newsweek remained the most popular magazine, our new additions Forbes and Bloomberg Businessweek were not far behind.

The biggest surprise was the scholarly journal Resuscitation, a newcomer to the top lists and straight to number one as the most read journal last year. The second place belongs to the Journal of pediatric nursing. Nursing journals dominated most of the top lists, as usual.

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.

Finnish material (books, magazine, journals etc.) has been excluded from the TOP10-lists below. For more inclusive lists, see Näitä HAMK luki 2023 (in Finnish).
