Extended digital access in the corona phase

Nasjonalbiblioteket : Contains large amounts of digital books and other material, such as newspapers and journals. Because of the corona situation, the national library has decided to temporarily open the access to the legal depostit collection for students at Norwegian universities. Until 30th of June, students can log on using Feide. Academic staff always has access with Feide. Here you can find more information on access to the legal deposit collection (Norwegian only).

Relevant resources from the database list in Oria

You can sort resources according to field of study, or choose interdisciplinary resources:

Atekst offers archive searches in over 300 Norwegian news papers, and are for research purposes and studying. Automatic downloads are not permitted. Several papers have a seven day embargo, but the title and introduction is searchable from the publication date. Atekst charges UiB 10 NOK for every article that is read, so for daily news paper reading we suggest using PressReader instead.

PressReader: PressReader delivers the world's leading newspapers and magazines to you in the original format, layout and pagination.

Idunn: Digital platform with full text articles and literature. Site available in English. 

Ordnett.no: Online dictionary. Norwegian-English/English-Norwegian, and also Norwegian to German, French, Spanish and Italian.
