New search setup in Oria

On Monday, December 9th, the search setup in Oria will change. The new setup has two different search options, and the default search is in UiO's own resources.

The new setup in Oria has two different search options.

The search box has to options for searching: University of Oslo Library and Norwegian research libraries
Select from the search box menu.

University of Oslo Library

  • This option searches only in UiO's own resources, that is to say in the library catalog, and in articles, book chapters, e-books etc. with electronic access. This is the default search.

Norwegian Academic Libraries

  • This option will return hits from the library catalogs of many more academic libraries throughout Norway.

Ordering books that UiO does not have

By searching the Norwegian Academic Libraries you get hits from the library catalogs of many academic libraries throughout Norway. These books can be ordered for you and sent to UiO. Here's how to order books from other libraries in Oria.

Loans from other libraries are offered to students and staff at UiO and the Oslo University Hospital. We only borrow literature to use for studies and research at UiO.

Questions and feedback

See more information about the search setup at, and on Oria's help pages.
