Course books

Course books refer to the books that are part of the present curricula of the degree programmes of Tampere University or Tampere University of Applied Sciences. We primarily acquire an e-book as a course book if there is one available for organisational use. We supplement our e-course books collection with printed books.

All course books can be found in Andor search service.
