The teaching collection comprises all the publications in relation to the courses held at EPFL (Bachelor and Master’s level) and for the most part recommended by the teachers as back-up to their courses. Several copies of them are available in the Library and they are indicated in the IS-Academia course index cards. Feel free to contact us for any missing references.
Some titles of the teaching collection are also available in the form of eBooks. Indicated by a QR code on the cover of the books on the shelves, the eBooks are assessible from any computer connected to the EPFL network (on the campus site or by way of the VPN), following the links indicated in BEAST.
Without necessarily being part of the teaching collection, some very good eTextbooks (electronic version of textbooks) are accessible in the thematic clusters or the publishers’ platforms below.
