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.
- Desktop.uib.no (only for staff) gives additional access to your own home area, the department's public areas and the University's printing services.
