Using a Private Computer

Staff and students at UiB can use all the electronic resources from their own computers, from home, or when off-campus

Possible solutions for access to UiB resources off campus

  • Start at the University Library's web page https://www.uib.no/ub/en
    A proxy-server will automatically connect when it is necessary. Log in with your usual user name and password at UoB. This goes for all the e-resources the University Library has access to

  • Manually linking via proxyserver: Write the following before the URL of the electronic resource you want to read: https://pva.uib.no/login?url=

  • VPN (Virtual Private Network) gives additional access to your own home area, the department's public areas and the University's printing services

  • desktop.uib.no  (only for staff) gives additional access to your own home area, the department's public areas and the University's printing services

 

You find more information about working from home or for using a private computer at the It-departements web page
