Help accessing e-resources

Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) about access to electronic resources such as articles, e-books, curriculum and databases.

  • How do I access electronic resources from home?

    When you are outside OsloMet's network, we recommend that you connect via VPN. Set up OsloMet's VPN solution (student.oslomet.no)

    Some e-resources also require that you log in via OsloMet Off campus access with your regular username and password.

  • What is my username and password?

    • The username is your student number only (for example, s123456).
    • The password is the same as the one you use to log in to Canvas.
    • If you fail to log in, check caps lock, or change your password (passord.oslomet.no). Avoid øæå and other special characters in the password. 
    • If you have entered the wrong password six or more times, your user will be blocked. Please try again in a few hours.
    • Access will cease when you are no longer a student at OsloMet.
  • I can't get access to the article when I follow the link from Oria

    • Sometimes the link sends you to the journal’s front page. Then you need to either search for the article there, or find it using the year, volume and issue of the article.
    • Some articles can be read directly from the website, while others must be downloaded as a PDF. Look for the PDF icon on the website.
    • In case of problems with the link, you can try a different browser or delete cookies (nettvett.no, Norwegian only).
  • How do I access e-books and articles from the reading list?

    Go to the curriculum’s reading list via Canvas to get full access to the resources. 

  • I can't access the e-resource on my curriculum

  • I can't access the e-book even though it says "Available online"

  • I searched a database and clicked @oslomet, but I can't access the article

    @OsloMet link will take you to Oria, where you'll see if the article is available. If the article is not available in full text, you can log in to Oria and order it.
