The library gives you access to even more e-books
You now have access to over 2,500 e-books at Emerald via the University Library!
UB has started a new Evidence Based Acquisition (EBA) agreement with the publisher Emerald. Emerald is a well-established publisher in the social sciences, but they also have a number of titles in health, criminology and the humanities. The agreement gives UiO's employees and students access to all e-books. The agreement period started on 15 November 2021 and lasts for one year.

What is an EBA agreement?
An Evidence Based Acquisition agreement is an agreement that provides access to a large package of e-books for an extended period of time. This way, the library can provide a larger selection of e-books than is possible with traditional purchases. At the same time, we retain access to a number of titles even after the agreement period is over. At that point the library gets an overview of the usage of the e-books and can select the ones we want to keep in our collection within a pre-agreed sum. We choose the titles we want to keep based on both usage throughout the period and other criteria, e.g. we prioritize syllabus literature.
