Read or order an article from a subject database

The University Library gives you access to journal articles electronically. To read articles, you must be connected to the UiO or OUS network, but you do not need to sign in to Oria. You can order articles that are not available.

  • Search for the article in your chosen subject database.
  • Click on the UiO button to see if the article is available online, or if it has to be ordered.

PubMed-post med UiO-knapp

  • You will now be taken to the Oria library search.

Read articles online

  • If the article is available online, you will see one or more "Full text available" links under the heading [View it]. Click on the Full text link to read the article.

  • Access:
    • If you are connected to the UiO or OUS network, you automatically have access to the articles.
    • If you are outside the network you will automatically be asked to sign in with a UiO user.
    • You do not need to click on [Sign in] above the Full text available links; this does not give you access to electronic resources, only to requesting and renewing loans.

Ordering articles

  • If the article is not available online, it will be labelled as "No full text available".
  • If you are a student or employee at UiO og OUS you can request the article.
  • If you haven't already signed in, click on [Sign in].
