Copyright Library

Copyright Library is a special library maintained by the Copyright Institute. The library was established in 1987 in association with the Finnish Composers’ Copyright Society Teosto, but it became part of the Copyright Institute in 1993. 

We offer library services and information retrieval services. The library is open to everyone and contains relevant domestic and international copyright-related literature.

Finnish Copyright Society Library

We are in the process of merging our collection with the collection of the Center for Cultural Policy Research Cupore's library, which is developed based on the needs of the research center's research projects. The core of Cupore's library collection consists of a collection donated by the Arts Council of Finland (now Arts Promotion Centre Finland) in 2012.

Opening Hours

The library is open by appointment Mon-Fri. 

Please contact us in advance if you wish to visit the library. Welcome!
