E-books: Start

Did you know...?

Only 1/6 of our books are shelved in the library. The rest are e-books!

The Arcada library offers you more than 150 000 e-books. Most of them can be read by unlimited simultaneus users.

Licence agreements

Some of the electronic resources are licensed through the FinELib (The Finnish National Electronic Library) consortium. The terms of use for each of these databases are defined in the licence agreements, and all users must conform to them. Information about the individual licenses of the databases are listed in FinELib with information about the user rights for each database.

Welcome to the Libguide for E-books!

In this guide you find information on the library's E-book collections and instructions for how to read and download books on different devices.
