Semester literature when you are teaching

AU Library can help you obtain copies of the semester literature so that it can be made available to your students. Either by adding it to the permanent collection at one of our libraries or by placing it on a semester shelf.

We are also happy to assist you in teaching your students how they can find their semester literature by themselves.

Need help?

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the liason librarian associated with your field, who will be happy to assist you with your questions.

Alternatively, you are always welcome to contact your local library.  

Reading List Services at AU Library

Use Brightspace

When planning your teaching, you also have the possibility of using Brightspace for sharing articles and other semester literature. See how to comply with our licenses and copyright rules.

How to get material placed on a semester shelf

The library can assist you by making copies of the books, that you want to use in your teaching, available via AU Library. Either on the semester shelf for that subject/department - or for inclusion in the library's main collection. 

Order a course in information searching for your students

Students may find it difficult to find the literature that you, as a lecturer, have listed as part of the course catalogue/literature list. AU Library are, at your request, ready to come and teach your class how to get access to the literature through the library.

Reading List Service - Aarhus BSS

As a lecturer at Aarhus BSS you can request that the library prepare a Reading List for you. The Reading List Service consists of a copyright check of the literature on the list, link checks (so that all links work), a standardised literature list, the purchase of any literature and, if required, the creation of a semester shelf.


Copyright can be tricky when it comes to teaching. We can help you avoid getting in any copyright trouble.
