5 tips to getting started
Borrow books and renew them online
You can borrow books and curriculum litterature at the library, free of charge. Search for the books in uio.oria.no, pick them up from the shelf and borrow. The lending period is normally 4 weeks, curriculum litterature has a shorter period. You can renew your loans yourself in Oria.
