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. A proxy-server will automatically connect when necessary. Log in with your usual username 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. Setup guide for VPN (UiBhjelp)
     
  • Desktop.uib.no (staff only): 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.
