Collaboration with Åbo Akademi University

The National Library of Sweden and Åbo Akademi University join forces in providing digital access to library collections.

This autumn, the National Library, “KB”, and Åbo Akademi University will enter into a partnership with the express goal of providing researchers and educators at Åbo Akademi University digital access to KB’s audiovisual materials and, at a later date even printed materials.

Likewise, researchers at KB and participants in a national pilot program are granted access to the collections at Åbo Akademi University. Unique for this collaboration is that long distance access is set to be provided across borders and regulated by licensed agreements.
