For a multiplicative set S of a commutative ring R we define the co-localization functor HomR(Rs,⋅). It is a functor on the category of R-modules to the category of Rs-modules. It is shown to be exact on the category of Artinian R-modules. While the co-localization of an Artinian module is almost never an Artinian Rs-module it inherits many good properties of A, e.g. it has a secondary representation. The construction is applied to the dual of a result of Bourbaki, a description of asymptotic prime divisors and the co-support of an Artinian module.
