When can you pick up?

Pick-up is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 12:00 and 14:00.

Where is the pick-up point?

You will collect your requested items outdoors, by the main entrance to the library you have received the pick up message from.

How to: Requesting and pick-up routine

Order via Oria or send an email to your library. You will receive a message when the items have been prepared and are ready for collection. The message will also include which library you should pick up from.

When you arrive, check the signs outside the relevant library for the contact telephone number. Ring this number to tell the staff that you have arrived, and someone will come out with the items in a bag. The items will be handled according to current rules for infection control precautions (smittevernregler).

Pick-up of items will always take place outside. Access to the buildings is not permitted. Take care to follow current infection control precautions when collecting, including keeping 2 metres between yourself and others.

Loan period

There will be no claims or fees in this period. All loans are automatically extended during this situation. 

Return of books/items:

  • You can now come to the libraries on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 12:00-14:00 to return items that you have borrowed.  You do not need to arrange this in advance.  Have the items ready in a bag.  Ring the telephone number outside the library and let us know you are here.  A member of staff will come out and take the bag.
  • You can also return items using the item-return slot, next to the outer door at the Arts and Humanities Library. This slot is always open, so you can return items at any time.
