By searching the library catalog Oria.no you find both e-books and paper books. After a search, you can choose to show only fulltext documents.

At the Art and humanities library you'll find the most important literature in digital culture, including the syllabus. The books in the library are arranged by disciplin, so books that are within the same disciplin stand together on the shelf. Within the disciplin books about the same subject are co-located. Each book has a number written on the back that determines where the book is placed on the library shelf. This is a so called Dewey number and the first numbers indicate the disciplin, while the next says something about the topic. You can also search in Oria on Dewey number, combined with words. You will also find e-books.

  • BORA (Bergen Open Research Archive)
    is the archive of scientific material produced by University of Bergen. Here you find master's theses, doctoral theses, articles and other free material. Texts produced by Digital culture is interesting for readers belonging to other disciplines, and it is important that they become publicly available. The University Library will no longer receive the printed thesis, so BORA is the best option for storage and dissemination. Documents in BORA are included in NORA (Norwegian Open Research Archives), a service harvesting the content in all the Norwegian institutional archives, and Open Access journals in Norway.

When you submit your thesis you will get a choice to make it available in BORA. Passed assignments will then be transferred to BORA. Send questions to bora@uib.no
