Meråpent at the HumSam Library
Sep. 7, 2020
We are introducing meråpent library in Georg Sverdrups hus on certain times of the week from Monday September 7. Meråpent library (More Open Library) means that the library is unstaffed, and the building is closed, but you can access with your UiO student- or staff card.
Are you a student or employee at UiO and need help finding literature for your assignment or using reference styles and tools? Book a one-hour tutoring session on Zoom, where we have time to go more in depht. You can book directly in the calendar two weeks ahead.
The writing centre is open for all students 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.
Summer closed between July 1 and August 16!
The Humanities and Social Sciences Library in Georg Sverdrups hus has one of the largest collections in Norway.
Book launch: Privateering and Diplomacy, 1793-1807

In late February 1793, a report landed on the desk of Daniel Hailes, the British diplomatic representative in Copenhagen, stating that a French privateer had been sighted off the Southern-Norwegian coastal town of Mandal. This was the start of what would become a long-lasting debate between Great Britain on the one hand, and the dual-monarchy of Denmark-Norway on the other.
