Library Cooperation at the NOVA University--the Nordic University in Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine.
The Nordic University in Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine--the NOVA University-was established in 1995 to increase the cooperation between the Nordic agricultural universities. The NOVA libraries of the seven institutions and facilities involved wanted to show that they are a very useful partner in launching new ideas. They have the ability to put new emerging IT technology to use. The NOVA libraries have several IT projects like NOVAGate, NOVA Web Course, and NOVABA. The NOVA libraries have found the right components for success: IT specialists, librarians and researchers working together multi-professionally, and the concept of sharing the workload. (Author)
