1. You can borrow curriculum books for free

First come, first served. The curriculum has a 2-week loan period, so if the book is on loan you can put yourself on the waiting list.

2. The library has over 2 million books. Use them!

You can use all our different departments, but most books in your field can be found at your specific subject library, or online. At UiO you have access to a vast amount of electronic books and articles.

3. Ask us for help with finding sources for your assignment

Come and talk to us in the library, ask for help or join a course.

4. Search Oria and professional databases to find quality-assured research

Search uio.oria.no, find the book in the book shelf and borrow it. Or search one of the quality assured, professional databases and download the material digitally.

5. Use Search and Write to master the writing process

At Search & Write you can find tips and advice for all phases of the writing process. You can also get writing help at one of our writing help events or at the Academic Writing Center.
