You will need a library card to borrow from UBA. Students and employees use their institution card. External patrons need to show proof of identity, with a picture, before they are issued with a library card.
Loans will be automatically renewed 5 times for students and patrons without affiliation to UiA and 24 times for employees unless the loan has been requested by someone else. In that case you will be notified by e-mail.
Maximum loan period: Students 12 weeks. Employees 50 weeks
Please note that some items, e.g. cd and journal issues, can only be borrowed for 14 days and cannot be renewed. For parts of the collection, UBA can determine other loan periods or "library-use-only".
Books that have been borrowed from other libraries are subject to the owner library's regulations. This is particularly relevant in the case of loan period, renewals, and compensation. Loans from other libraries can be renewed as normal in Oria.
What do you want to do ?New mailCopy
As a patron you are personally responsible for resources that you borrow; please make sure that they are returned within the due date and in good condition.
We will notify you in advance of the final due date and on the due date itself. If you do not return the item(s) in question, we will send a reminder, a notice concerning the compensation fee, and again for the compensation fee itself. There will be late fees on the first and second reminders after the due date. The notification about the due date is sent as an SMS, on the condition that you have a Norwegian mobile phone number.
Patrons that do not return a borrowed item, that is several weeks overdue, or patrons with unpaid fees more than kr 150, will be barred from further loans and orders.
A few days after the e-mail with the subject "Compensation fee / Erstatningsgebyr" is sent, you will be invoiced for the missing item. The fee is 750 Norwegian Krones for compensation and 250 Krones for administration per document. The compensation fee for Dictaphones is 1000 Krones. Books belonging to other libraries are subject to their regulations.
The status for your loans and orders can be viewed when you log on to Oria. To ensure that you receive these emails, please check your spam filter and accept the sender "firstname.lastname@example.org".
