The Kopinor agreement allows the use of copyrighted materials to be used in higher education, with some restriction. In order to share chapters and articles with the students, the rights have to be cleared before the semester starts. AHO have to comply with the copyright laws and regulations.



The course instructor creates the reading lists in Leganto and send them to the library for rights clearing, purchase and completion. 
Physical books are marked with Kursbok - 1 ukes lån (Course book 1 week loan) and placed in the main collection. The availability is visible in Oria/Leganto for students and staff. We no longer place course books on separte shelves since we want students to discover other titles on the same topic and learn how to navigate the library. 

If the lists contain chapters and articles it can take up to 14 days to clarify the rights according to the Kopinor agreement. We use Bolk to clarify the rights and files shared in Leganto need an accompanying text stating the rights to use the documents. AHO pays for the use of chapters/articles above the 15% included in the Kopinor agreement. 


Most e-books have the same policies as the printed books, one user at the time for 28 days. We can open for more users and/or shorten the loan time to 7 days. Please let us know if you want students to have simulatenous access to entire e-books or chapters. 

Physical books

We achieve to purchase books on the course reading lists, please note that it might take 7 days or 3 months to get hold of some titles.
