E-books, digital newspapers and magazines
The majority of articles and journals that the University Library subscribes to are accessible from home when you are logged in with your OsloMet username and password. We recommend using VPN when you are outside of OsloMet’s network (student.oslomet.no).
Search for what you need in Oria.no or go via the database list. In addition, Oria provides access to the library's e-books.
Some curriculum/course literature are available online. Via Gyldendal you have access to 55 Norwegian e-books. These cover interdisciplinary subjects such as health sciences, methodology, pedagogy and economics (oria.no). We also have an extensive collection for English-language digital books (oria.no).
Pressreader (oria.no) provides access to a number of Norwegian and international newspapers and magazines.
