The "Library Access" browser extension

If you don't use Oria, the "Library Access" browser extension from Lean Library can make life a little easier. It recognizes the online resources you visit regardless of how you find them. The extension also searches for open versions of articles (Open Access).

Go to, install the extension and select "University of Oslo" as the institution. The extension is not available for Internet Explorer yet.

Alternative access methods

  • If you can't access electronic resources from Oria you can use the UiO Programkiosk.
  • VPN is a method that can be used if you often use other search methods than Oria. To use VPN you must change some settings on your computer.

For more information about access from home see UiO's pages
