UiA - The University Library (UBA) provides interlibrary loans for libraries in and outside Norway. Libraries do not lend remotely to students and staff at UiA; they must reserve and order directly. This also applies to students who are part time at UiA. Click here for more information for distance students and students who live far from campus.
Check the lending terms in Oria.no regardless of whether you order from your own library system or via Oria.no. Log in and click all the way to the copy level. If you only look at the sub-collection level (for example "Location: Kristiansand UBA / KRIS 808,066 Thi"), it may look as if we have an available copy, but there is one that is for day loans only.
UBA remotely lends documents with short-term loans, such as DVDs, music CDs and magazine booklets, or day loans.
Price per article / chapter copy is NOK 60. Norfri Library is excluded.
Orders via Oria and from own catalog
The interlibrary loan protocol NCIP P2P was introduced in 2017 and sends orders between different library systems. You can order directly from your own system, but you can also order in Oria.
Login to Oria:
Select Feide and log in with the username and password that applies to your library.
In the tab "Interlibrary loan (beta)" you can order a loan. You will receive a receipt for your own library system. Standard loan period is 42 days.
In the tab "Find and order" you can order a copy. You will not receive a receipt for your library system. Copies of electronic journals can only be ordered by e-mail. Standard loan period is the same as for all students. See loan terms.
Different ordering functionality makes it difficult for public libraries to get an overall overview of the loans from UBA.
We refer to the information pages of Unit (formerly Bibsys) and the National Library.
UBA uses Norwegian Library Transport (NBT). When a library has not received their document within a reasonable time, they must contact UBA. If the document has been sent, UBA registers deviations and reports to the ordering library. UBA also registers deviations when the document is returned to us but does not arrive within a reasonable time.
See our loan terms for compensation. For smaller libraries that do not have their own finance department, we send the invoice to the municipality or county municipality.
