Digital groups and study groups

In addition to what is organized through UiB, we encourage you to form digital collaborative and social groups as well to maintain a safe contact outside the campus. Students are welcome to create their own Teams in Office 365 for video meetings, screen sharing, chat and file sharing. Microsoft Teams is not connected to Mitt UiB, but may be used as an alternative for self-study and study-groups outside the organized teaching at UiB. 

Digital services at the University of Bergen Library 

The University Library's digital services and resources are always open and available.
