BUas Copyright Information Point

Do you want to use publications by others like articles, book chapters, pictures, and recordings as teaching materials in Teams or CumLaude? Wondering how to act ethically when they are subject to copyright protection? Do you want to know who owns the copyrights of materials that you have created within the framework of your job or during work hours? Or are you curious what your position is when discussing copyrights of your (open access) publication or product with publishers?

BUas Copyright Information Point (CIP) is there to inform you! It offers information and advice on copyright issues to students and employees of BUas. Check out the information on the Library homepage or contact the CIP directly:

Referencing at AHF

True, referencing is not rocket science. But how easy do you make a mistake because you overlook a missing dot or bracket, get confused by deviant examples, or overlook mistakes by your reference manager program. In addition, unlike APA, there is no definite form or one single source document for the Harvard referencing style. This leads to a variety of formats so which one to use?

Help is at hand! Together with faculty of AHF we have designed the library guide Referencing@AHF. It offers guidelines and examples on how to do this in the proper way at our academy.

New library system, new options for you!

This summer the library catalogue has been upgraded and it offers some new options:

  • You can now reserve almost all materials in the library (on the shelf or on loan). Make a reservation (via 'place hold') and pick up your materials when you have received a pick up notice. Except reference materials. 
  • The catalogue shows pictures of book covers. Very useful for making sure you are reserving the book you need.
  • You can now easily log in with your BUas credentials and extend the lending period of the library materials from home.
  • Looking for a specific type of material? Such as theses or placement reports? Use "advanced search" and select the material you are looking for. Enter keywords and start your search.


Are you looking for ways to improve the study success of students in your blended learning course? Let the Library help you. We offer various tools and services to improve your students' information skills, one of the so-called 21st Century Skills, and therewith the quality of their products. Some of the options:

  • integrate one of our existing tools in your curriculum like the Information Skills Toolbox
  • refer students to our  libguides on Harvard referencing,  APA referencing or APA manuals & tutorials
