About systematic reviews, literature search, publishing, data management and full text access
The library can help you with
Access to articles and books
Find full text via subject databases and Oria:
PubMed and other databases must be accessed from the University Library's web pages to get easy access to the full text. Accessing a database via our webpages enables the UBB-button to be displayed beside the references in the database. The UBB button links to the full text of the reference via Oria.
In Oria, you will find the link to the full text of the publication in the section called "View Online".
If the full text link is not available, you can sign in to Oria and request the article:
Click "Sign in", choose "Feide" and use your UiB user name and password. More information is available on the Oria help pages for sign in and searching.
Due to copyright, requested article copies often have to be delivered physically. If you have an office address registered at the library we can send requested articles via internal mail. To request books or articles you must be registered as a library user or employee/student at UiB.
Access from home:
When working from home, you can connect to UiB's network by proxy or VPN.The University Library's home pages will automatically route you to the proxy server when necessary.
