Welcome to The Library of Humanities and Social Sciences in Georg Sverdrup's hus. We primarily serve students and staff at HF, SV, UV and TF, but we are also open to the public.
Contact us for help, guidance, or if you have any questions. You can get help at the library desk, telephone or email. Are you a student or employee at UiO and need help finding literature for your assignment, article etc, or using reference styles and tools? Book a one-hour tutoring session on Zoom or in the library. You can book directly in the calendar two weeks ahead.
The writing centre is open for all students and researchers who wish to improve their own writing. Order an appointment, and discuss your ideas, drafts and questions with one of our writing consultants on Zoom or in the library.
