This Spring, the Helsinki University Library offers a wide range of online courses and webinars. Students and staff at the University of Helsinki may participate in courses free of charge.   

How to Find Courses?   

You may browse the courses on by searching with “LIB-”.  

You may also search for a specific course with the course code (for example LIB-500).  See the list of course codes on the Instructions for Students page.

On this online course, you’ll learn independently at your own pace for example about the following topics:
